“States United”

While the federal government fails to heed the advice of medical scientists, it is imperative that the governors of States Unite to cooperate with respect to sharing resources and performing testing of random samples in order to have a judgement of the spread of the virus based on real data rather than intuition.

It is important to show our support for governors to keep us safe.

#StatesUnited to cooperate against COVID19

We the People, undersigned, support and petition our respective governors to join the "States United" to coordinate the fight against the spread of COVID-19 by reopening the economy in a way that prevents a second wave of the virus. The "States United" currently include Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. California, Oregon and Washington are also cooperating and have sent ventilators to New York.
