Loeffler also expressed gratitude about being added to the task force.

“Thank you, [Donald Trump] for appointing me to your taskforce on re-opening America safely in the wake of [COVID 19]. With 22 million Americans filing for unemployment, it’s clear we must start working to revive our economy and get the American people back to work safely.”

The full list of participants that will be a part of the task force to advise on the reopening is expected to be released by the White House.

During Thursday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing, Trump is expected to announce new guidelines on reopening the country.
