Trump Tells Governors He Is Setting New Coronavirus Guidelines

NBC News- President Donald Trump told America’s governors in a letter on Thursday that his administration will soon set new social distancing guidelines as the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

Trump said in the letter that new coronavirus testing capabilities would allow his administration to identify “high-risk, medium risk and low-risk” counties. And these new guidelines will assist governors and other officials decide on “maintaining, increasing or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures they have put in place.”

Public health experts have said easing restrictions too early could put an enormous strain on hospitals and lead to even more deaths and economic damage.

Trump said Tuesday he wants the country back to business by April 12, Easter Sunday, when he would like to see churches full of people, even as the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

“I would love to have the country opened up and raring to go by Easter,” Trump said during a Fox News interview.
