Trump extends federal social distancing guidelines to April 30

President Trump said Sunday that the White House will keep its guidelines for social distancing in place through the end of April to try to blunt the spread of the coronavirus, a significant shift from less than a week ago, when he said he hoped the country could be ’opened up’ by Easter. In his briefing, Trump also said that the peak in death rate in the pandemic is likely to hit in two weeks.

As the advertising dollars start drying up due to people buyIng less and less stuff, how long will it be before the MSM starts screaming for the government to "re-open" the economy?

This is dangerous, I don't know if the economy can bounce back from being shut down this long. We very well could break the US unemployment record of 25% set by the Great Depression.

Man mentions he'd liked to get people back to work by Easter and the left treats it like policy. “Trump officially gives up on reopening economy by Easter.” Gimme a break.

Maybe if Trump didnt ignore the virus for 2 months we wouldn't be in this position. The buck stops with him.

Govs would rather risk their economies than to tell everyone to cover their face. People being even somewhat unidentifiable scares them. Even if it means letting a virus spread. Time for everyone to wear a mask.

I tested two Covid patients today and I can tell you until you have to walk into that room with a reused mask you dont have any room to talk so just stfu. Every ICU bed is a covid patient, all equipment outside the rooms I've never seen anything like this.

Kinda expected this to happen. This will be a rough spot but hopefully we’ll pull through.
