(NewsReady.com) – President Donald Trump’s administration is doing all it can to limit the spread of COVID-19. That means constantly updating guidelines as new information comes in. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did exactly that this week.
Over the weekend the CDC asked Americans to avoid crowds of more than 50 people for 8 weeks. Less than 24 hours later, the recommendation changed. Now the agency is asking people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people for at least 15 days. The CDC retweeted this to inform its followers to take heed of this new guideline.

The new guidelines warn against going to places with large populations of elderly people like nursing homes. Students should move to online classes if they can. Everyone should limit unnecessary trips to stores and restaurants. You should continue washing your hands often and don’t touch your eyes, mouth or nose.
Social distancing can help slow the spread of #COVID19 in affected communities. This means avoiding crowded places and maintaining distance from others. More prevention tips: https://t.co/bUyobRHpCE. pic.twitter.com/IQjSwRxIzn
