Provider: CORONAVIRUS RUMORS - MYTH BUSTERS

NATIONAL GUARD & MILITARY RELATED RUMORS
There are rumors circulating that Homeland Security is mobilizing National Guard troops to support a nationwide quarantine. This rumor is false. There is no implementation of a nationwide quarantine. States and cities are responsible for announcing curfews, shelters in place, or other restrictions and safety measures.

Fact: On March 22, President Trump directed the Secretary of Defense to permit full federal reimbursement, by FEMA, for some states' use of their National Guard forces. The President's action provides Governors continued command of their National Guard forces, while being federally funded under Title 32. Each state's National Guard is still under the authority of the Governor and is working in concert with the Department of Defense.
