First lady Melania Trump tweeted out urging that Americans should take social distancing and mask-wearing seriously.
‘As the weekend approaches I ask that everyone take social distancing & wearing a mask/face covering seriously,’ she tweeted from her FLOTUS account. ‘#COVID19 is a virus that can spread to anyone – we can stop this together.’
For days, top experts, including members of Trump’s coronavirus taskforce said they were debating whether or not to put out a mask recommendation.
But then President Trump announced at his Friday press briefing that the Centers for Disease Control was now recommending that Americans wear non-medical cloth masks – but pressed that it wasn’t a mandate.
‘So it’s voluntary, you don’t have to be doing it,’ the president said from the briefing room podium. ‘This is voluntary, I don’t think I’m going to be doing it.’
President Trump was tested for the virus for a second time on Thursday – this time with the quicker 15-minute test. Participants in White House meetings are also now getting this test.
‘I was just tested also, so I assume I don’t have the virus so I don’t have to worry about spreading it,’ the president said.
