The Federal Coronavirus Response Task Force is a task force established by the Executive Council of Sierra that is responsible for the "coordination and management of federal, provincial, and local response to the coronavirus pandemic". The task force was established on February 1, 2020 and is chaired by Surgeon General Isabelle Huynh and managed by Tony Florentino, the Director of the Federal Institute for Internal Medicine and Immunology. It consists of over 20 individuals across various government agencies, bodies, and departments. It advises the Occidental Palace, Privy Council, Getty House, and Parliament on all issues related to the coronavirus pandemic, including economic concerns. It is responsible for informing the public through daily briefings, public service announcements, disease mitigation guidelines, and official statistics keeping on coronavirus cases.

Background[edit]

The first documented case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was a man in his 50s in the province of Orange on January 25. The man was a Sierran national who had returned from a trip to visit family in Wuhan, China. On January 29, the Sierran government evacuated over 200 Sierran nationals from Wuhan to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, Inland Empire. On the same day, another case was confirmed from a Chinese national who traveled from Wuhan to Grands Ballons on a cruise vacation aboard the Water Sheep. On February 1, the Executive Council established the Federal Coronavirus Response Task Force in order to monitor the progression and spread of the virus. On March 13, the Heartwell Ministry declared a public health emergency and placed travel restrictions to China, Korea, and member states of the European Union.
