Trump Says ‘Social Distancing” Will Expire Today

President Trump said the existing coronavirus social distancing guidelines that are set to expire with the end of April on Thursday will not be extended further, as more governors begin steps to lift restrictions and reopen their economies.

The administration said the existing social distancing recommendations are being incorporated by governors into their new future plans.

“They’ll be fading out, because now the governors are doing it,” Trump said.

During a White House meeting with Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards on Wednesday, Trump commended governors for taking steps to reopen their economies.

Vice President Pence said the existing guidelines were being applied to the new guidance issued by the White House on how states can reopen safely.
