Guidelines for America - 30 Days to Slow the Spread of Coronavirus; 100K to 240K Deaths Possible

President Donald Trump extended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday, March 31, to control the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. The President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America - 30 Days to Slow the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are an extension of the previous "15 Days" guidelines which were issued on March 16 and just expired. The guidelines now run through April 30. "It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines," President Trump said during the briefing. "It's a matter of life and death." Up to date information and more resources can be found at coronavirus.gov.

Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Task Force Coordinator, displayed modeling that showed total deaths from coronavirus across the US could reach 100,000 to 240,000 with the peak coming in two weeks. That assumes that current strong social distancing measures continue.

"This is going to be a rough two week period," Trump said. "As a nation we're going to have a really rough two weeks. Our strength will be tested and our endurance will be tried."

Data from the University of Washington's Healthdata.org shows a projected 84,000 deaths. It also projects 1,600 deaths in Pennsylvania and that PA will be able to handle the number of hospital and ICU beds needed across the state at the peak. (https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections)

THE PRESIDENT'S CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES FOR AMERICA

30 DAYS TO SLOW TO SLOW THE SPREAD

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. Do not send them to school. Contact your medical provider.

IF SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS TESTED POSITIVE for the coronavirus, keep the entire household at home. Do not go to work. Do not go to school. Contact your medical provider.

IF YOU ARE AN OLDER PERSON, stay home and away from other people.

IF YOU ARE A PERSON WITH A SERIOUS UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITION that can put you at increased risk (for example, a condition that impairs your lung or heart function or weakens your immune system), stay home and away from other people.


DO YOUR PART TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS

Even if you are young, or otherwise healthy, you are at risk and your activities can increase the risk for others. It is critical that you do your part to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Work or engage in schooling FROM HOME whenever possible.

IF YOU WORK IN A CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE INDUSTRY as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule. You and your employers should follow CDC guidance to protect your health at work.

AVOID SOCIAL GATHERINGS in groups of more than 10 people.

Avoid eating or drinking at bars, restaurants, and food courts - USE DRIVE-THRU, PICKUP, OR DELIVERY OPTIONS.

AVOID DISCRETIONARY TRAVEL, shopping trips, and social visits.

DO NOT VISIT nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance.

PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE:
- Wash your hands, especially after touching any frequently used item or surface.

- Avoid touching your face.

- Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.

- Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible

School operations can accelerate the spread of the coronavirus. Governors of states with evidence of community transmission should close schools in affected and surrounding areas. Governors should close schools in communities that are near areas of community transmission, even if those areas are in neighboring states. In addition, state and local officials should close schools where coronavirus has been identified in the population associated with the school. States and localities that close schools need to address childcare needs of critical responders, as well as the nutritional needs of children.

Older people are particularly at risk from the coronavirus. All states should follow Federal guidance and halt social visits to nursing homes and retirement and long-term care facilities.

In states with evidence of community transmission, bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms, and other indoor and outdoor venues where groups of people congregate should be closed.

These guidelines appear at The President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America - 30 Days to Slow the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
