On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was signed into law. This comes on the heels of the passing of an $8.3 billion emergency spending package and is likely to be followed by a number of new laws and provisions designed to provide relief from the rapid spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In addition to providing nutrition assistance, boosting unemployment aid, and making COVID-19 testing free to the public, the act has a number of provisions that greatly impact small businesses.
