The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will provide state and local public health departments with $186 million in funding to help track and test for COVID-19, HHS said on Monday.

The CDC will use the funding to support ongoing efforts to address coronavirus “hot zones” and areas with a rapid increase in reported cases that could soon become hot zones.

In addition, the agency will give the emergency infections program a boost to improve the ability of public health departments to track the virus, including funds to “assess and evaluate exposed/infected healthcare personnel through clinical interviews to better identify risk factors and protective factors for COVID-19 infection,” HHS said in a statement.
