The massive bill also rushes billions of dollars to medical providers on the front lines of the outbreak.

Democrats and Republicans in the Democratic-led House approved the package on a voice vote Friday, turning back a procedural challenge from Republican Representative Thomas Massie, who had sought to force a formal, recorded vote that could have delayed its passage.

The Senate, which approved the bill in a unanimous vote on Wednesday evening, has adjourned and is not scheduled to return to Washington until late April.
