Perhaps the only good thing to come out of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, is the realization that we’re all in this together.
We at Codetic are committed to bringing you ways to protect yourself, your family and your finances from the spread of the virus.
Since we began our coverage, the federal government has passed emergency legislation known as the CARES Act — or the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act — to address public health and economic issues due to the coronavirus.
We’re continuing to add articles addressing your questions about what the act will mean for you and your finances.
We’ve rounded up topics that we think are most relevant to the situation we’re all living through right now. We’ll update it regularly to continue to bring you the most recent information.
