COVER: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) works in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – and in coordination with other federal, state, local, and tribal partners – to synchronize the interagency response for the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, USACE has received 64 FEMA mission assignments, completed 1,155 site assessments for potential alternate care facilities (ACFs), and awarded 38 contracts for ACFs across 17 states, one tribal nation, one U.S. territory, and the District of Columbia. Seen here is Hall C of McCormick Place in Chicago near completion on April 1, 2020. USACE’s Chicago District constructed capacity for 500 COVID-19 patients in Hall C and a total of 3,000 throughout the convention center. The Chicago District, at the request of FEMA, and the state of Illinois mobilized to plan and construct the ACF. U.S. Army photo by Patrick Bray
