Trump Says He’s Preparing New Social Distancing Guidelines Depending on State ‘Risk’ Factors


In a letter today to governors, President Donald Trump said that his administration was preparing new coronavirus social distancing guidance that could potentially be more relaxed. According to CNN, the guidelines would depend on geographic risk factors determined by the country’s “expanded testing capabilities.” “High-risk, medium risk and low-risk” counties would receive different guidance depending on their classification so states could decide on “maintaining, increasing or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures they have put in place.” Trump announced 15-day social distancing measures last week, but has since indicated that he’d like to loosen them so the country would be up and running by mid-April.

“There is still a long battle ahead, but our efforts are already paying dividends,” Trump wrote in the letter. “As we enhance protections against the virus, Americans across the country are hoping the day will soon arrive when they can resume their normal economic, social and religious lives.” Read more at CNN.



  1. Please listen to the superbly excellent video titled: “To beat the coronavirus, we have to think about OTHERS, not just ourselves,” at the Pandemic (dot) news website. Its title already really says everything, as the speaker heavily stresses the serious responsibility that we have in this grave situation, and sharply condemns those who flaunt the directives and purposely go out in public and, Chas V’Shalom, endanger other people.
