President Trump sent a letter to state governors saying there will soon be new guidelines on whether to relax or increase coronavirus protection measures.
Trump said his administration is working on new guidelines for governments to use when making decisions on relaxing or increasing coronavirus measures.2:36 PM ET NPR Staff President Trump said in a letter to U.S. governors on Thursday that his administration is working to publish new guidelines for state and local governments to use when making decisions about"maintaining, increasing or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures" for the coronavirus epidemic. White House Works On New Coronavirus Guidelines To Classify Counties By Risk Trump said officials are gathering testing data that will suggest guidelines categorizing counties as"high risk, medium risk or low risk" for the virus. The data will drive"the next phase" of the response, he said. Trump has indicated that he wants to adjust his 15-day social distancing guidelines so that more parts of the stalled U.S. economy can reopen by April 12. The 15th day of the original guidelines is Monday. Read the full letter below, or click here : Trump's new letter echoes recent comments about the use of data made by his top advisers in recent days. On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health, told the White House briefing that testing"has really changed the complexion of the approach that we're going to be able to take."

Take your golden letter and burn it in your gaslight. Can someone define “robust surveillance,” please? I want to be sure I understand that correctly that I may emote correctly. Can state and local leaders disregard the letter if they feel it’s in the best interest of their constituents? Like having a better shot at staying alive. Asking for a friend.
State governors would be better served consulting people who are actually knowledgeable about virus and how they spread. States sovereign immunity. Trust Colorado’s decision making process way over renegade President’s personal opinion based on lack of knowledge and what benefits him. Actually, think Colorado should consider seceding from the U.S.
So done with this shit, not drinking the Koolaid manipulation stupidity we need to StayHealthy SociallyDistant FightCOVID19 fucktrump 10to1 he’s going to relax protection measures. No matter what the professionals say or how the virus is going it’s in his head Easter will be the reopening of America. I just pray his folly doesn’t start a relapse. Then again he won’t admit it.
The states will ignore whatever Trump’s new guidance is, just like they ignored the last guidance. Trump is irrelevant to this. Sheer stupidity Npr = trump news network And governors are better off listening to other world leaders and scientists. Our president is an idiot!
Read the letter a wealth manager sent to clients as the market tanked - Business InsiderAs difficult as it is, we must seemingly do nothing at this point, while in reality we are doing exactly what we should be doing. Stop posting nonsense like this. This market is only being held up by a ridiculous amount of money being pumped into it by the government right now. There is no economy. And there won’t be for months. Does this look like a good fundamental?
This is a guy who tweets random potshots at his perceived enemies during the country's biggest public health crisis, a guy who insults our free press at will. Who could take seriously something sent out on the letterhead of the high office he doesn't even pretend to respect? Nobody in their right mind still listens to realDonaldTrump anymore, so that blowhard can just keep blowing. I'll take advice from NYGovCuomo
Needs to increase isolation measures. This will not be over by Easter! Listen to the health specialists. Tests, tests, tests are needed. Thank goodness my Governor GovMLG in NM is a leader. TrumpLiesAboutCoronavirus NPR, where is the 75 million you are getting going to? As we just become the hot spot in the world, brilliant!
Thank God the good Governors are going to tell him to fuck right off. Classic realDonaldTrump cover both sides so he can say he knew about it beforehand. Who the fuck wrote this? It certainly wasn’t Trumped
Column: Has Trump even read his own 'Coronavirus Guidelines for America'?Trump's own 'Guidelines for America' don't mention reopening the country by Easter I received this in the mail today. Thank God I take & spray lysol on/in my mail box.😷😃 Not reading type; he is the bidding type... If given leeway, will build walls to fight CoVid19 infestations, brilliant isn't it? No
Just stop covering these pressers already. They are so damaging Trump is dangerous! Help CDCgov Nice letter. It wasn't written by the president. Also, it is what -everyone- in the profession has been saying. We need to have much more testing capacity before we can move forward with opening things up. He isn't doing anything to help & instead is actively hindering the goal.
and i urge them to follow his guidelines as closely as he’s followed the Constitution, the laws of the United States, and his oath of office. which is to say, not at all. mmmmmthatgirl turn the machines back on turn the machines back on I can’t read even a letter from Trump without hearing his stupid sounding voice in my head.. argh

From an sociopath who is scientifically illiterate, poorly informed, and surrounded by dogmatic & ideological advisors? No thanks. FucktRump Come back to us in a week on this....... KCET Odds that governors will listen? Which physicians enorsed this? I wish they would think about this more, if you start pointing out areas in the US that are less infected, safe, you create the risk of infecting all of the US as people flee there from the cities. These safe areas are where the food comes from. Think?
Sounds like doesn’t expect people to move from county to county now. That’s worked really well to far. This man's going to get us all killed, isn't he. The person I’m listening to is our governor, AndyBeshearKY . I’m not listening to Trump. He’s an idiot. We might actually be all better off with no federal government at all. National military, basic cooperation frameworks for everything else. Abolish the senate. They're beyond useless
