Trump extends social distancing guidelines to April 30, Forecasts’Good things’ from June 1

President Donald Trump on Sunday declared he is extending his government’s guidelines on social distancing amid the COVID-19 outbreak until April 30.

Trump stated last week that he wished to see a lot of the nation return to normal from Easter, April 12, despite warnings against leading health specialists who easing the recommendations too soon might cause widespread deaths and economic harm.

The president said Friday he would be consulting his government’s leading medical specialists on whether to expand or alter the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines about slowing the spread of this novel coronavirus.

But on Sunday,” Trump said Easter was”an aspiration” and said he anticipates”good things to be occurring” by June 1.
