Trump extends social distancing guidelines to April 30

Gov. Andrew Cuomo rips possible New York travel ban


WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that the White House would be extending its social distancing guidelines through April 30 – a month longer than an initial 15-day timeline when they were implemented on March 16.

“The peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks,” Trump said. “Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won.”

The announcement marks a departure from Trump's comments last week in which he said he hoped to open up the country by Easter, which falls on April 12, with “packed churches all over our country.” He suggested it was a “beautiful” time to ease up on the social distancing guidelines that are aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus to prevent overwhelming the health care system, but that have crippled the U.S. economy.

Trump said Sunday that the White House task force would be sharing further data and finalized plans on Tuesday, and that he expects “we will be well on our way to recovery” by June 1.
