During the White House Press Briefing on Monday, March 16, President Trump said that based on the new modeling conducted by Dr. Birx, they are making a decision to further toughen the guidelines regarding coronavirus. According to the president, the goal is to "rather be ahead of the curve than behind it, and that's what we are."

The Trump administration is making the following recommendations to all Americans:

 -work to engage in schooling from home when possible. 

 -avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people. 

-Avoid discretionary travel.  And avoid eating and drinking at bars, restaurants, and public food courts.
 
"If everyone makes this change or these critical changes and sacrifices now, we will rally together as one nation and we will defeat the virus.  And we're going to have a big celebration all together," Trump said.

These guidelines will be revisited in 15 days but the president said that this way of life can become the new normal until the end of summer.

"We'll see what happens.  But they think August.  Could be July.  Could be longer than that.  But I've asked that question many, many times," he said. 

Listen to and follow the directions of your state and local authorities.

If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. Contact your medical provider.

If your children are sick, keep them at home. Contact your medical provider.

If someone in your household has tested positive for the Coronavirus, keep the entire household at home.

If you are an older American, stay home and away from other people.

If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition—such as a significant heart or lung problem—stay home and away from other people.
