Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) voted in support of H.R. 4040, the Advancing Telehealth Beyond COVID–19 Act. This bill extends for two years some of the telehealth flexibilities put in place at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rep. Valadao supported this bill, but believes it is in the best interest of rural communities to make these flexibilities permanent.

“Members of rural communities often live miles away from healthcare services, and many cannot afford the time or do not have adequate transportation to seek care for themselves and their loves ones,” said Congressman Valadao. “The COVID-19 pandemic made clear the importance of healthcare access for these underserved communities, and telehealth services have proven to be especially beneficial for patients in rural areas.”

Today, Congressman David G. Valadao, Leader Kevin McCarthy, Congressman Jim Costa, Congressman Devin Nunes, and Congressman Josh Harder sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom and Acting FEMA Administrator Robert Fenton strongly urging the establishment of multiple COVID-19 vaccination sites in California’s Central Valley. Governor Newsom recently announced two community vaccination sites in Alameda and Los Angeles Counties, though those two counties already have far higher vaccination rates than Central Valley counties. While Governor Newsom later indicated the intent to establish a vaccination site in the Valley, low vaccination rates demonstrate the need for multiple sites throughout the region.
