Question: How do we assign RDS CALs to users if we are using Win Server 2019 as the host in WVD?

Answer:

For RDS CALs it works in WVD exactly the same as on-premises, and the customer needs to have the appropriate number of it purchased.

If you are using Windows Server in your host pool then you need to set the licensing mode to Per User and Specify the FQDN of your RD Licensing server.  You can do this via group policy settings applied to your session hosts:

 

Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates\ Windows Components\ Remote Desktop Services\ Remote Desktop Session Host\ Licensing

 

RDS CALs with Software Assurance of course, not just any RDS CAL
