Trump issues rules: America keeps her “social distance”

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

On March 16, President Trump urged all Americans to make sacrifices in order to defeat the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The president has recommended that everyone should avoid gathering with more than ten people at a time. He has also suggested that discretionary travel be stopped and if possible, people should be working from home.  The length of this restriction will be at least 8 weeks, which will bring us to the middle of May.

The intent of the “social distancing,” the practice of keeping six feet between people, is to slow the spread of Covid-19 in America. If we can slow the progress of the spread, we might avoid overwhelming our health care system. The president called on Americans to do what is necessary to beat the virus.

Some good news out of Washington is about a vaccine for the coronavirus. One of the president’s White House Coronavirus Task Force members, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has confirmed that a vaccine is being tested on a candidate.

The vaccine was developed in 65 days, a record for vaccines.  The vaccine will need to be tested multiple times before it can be deployed to fight the virus.

The disadvantages of being isolated due to the coronavirus are numerous. Schools have been closed all over the country right in the middle of the spring sports season. Many are saying that school may not reconvene at all. Many athletes are not able to complete their seasons.

Restaurants and bars have been ordered to close in many states. People are having trouble getting child care for children home from school. You can find guidance on what to do to prevent the spread of the disease here.

Elderly people  the most vulnerable of the population, are being asked to remain isolated, ages 65 and up, and family members, including younger people are being asked to protect the elderly.

President Trump and the governors cannot defeat the virus alone. We, the people, have to do everything we can to slow or stop this virus.
