White House: People who have left New York City recently should self-quarantine for 14 daysDue to a rise in coronavirus infections, the White House advised people who have recently left New York City to self-quarantine for 14 days to avoid spreading the disease further.New York state, the epicenter of the U.S.’s coronavirus outbreak, houses at least 20,000 of the country’s 52,000 infections.

New York City holds at least 14,000. Florida governor plans to expand self-quarantine mandate for travelers from New York tri-state areaFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday he plans to expand his already far-reaching executive order mandating a 14-day self-quarantine or isolation period for travelers coming to Florida from airports in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.DeSantis said he will sign an additional order to make his original mandate apply retroactively to anyone who has traveled to Florida from those states in the last three weeks. The move to expand the first large-scale attempt by a state to impose a self-quarantine period for domestic travelers comes as more than 51,000 coronavirus cases were reported in the country by Tuesday afternoon — more than half of them in New York. At least 659 people in the U.S. have died.

DeSantis said that members of the Florida National Guard were at Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Tuesday, providing information to travelers from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in compliance with the executive order he issued Monday.

Trump wants nation back in business by EasterPresident Donald Trump says he wants the nation “opened up and just raring to go by Easter” — a date just more than two weeks away that few health experts believe will be sufficient in containing the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking during a Fox News town hall on Tuesday, Trump reiterated he was eager to see the nation return to normal soon, even as doctors warn the nation will see a massive spike in cases if Americans return to crowded workplaces or events.”I give it two weeks,” Trump said earlier in the town hall, suggesting he was ready to phase out his 15-day self-isolating guidelines when they expire. “I guess by Monday or Tuesday, it’s about two weeks. We will assess at that time and give it more time if we need a little more time. We have to open this country up.

“But Trump said Monday that the health experts on his task force do not necessarily agree with his hope for a quick return to their jobs to boost the economy. Some Republicans on Capitol Hill, including Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa and Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, are also sounding the alarm.”

There will be no normally functioning economy if our hospitals are overwhelmed and thousands of Americans of all ages, including our doctors and nurses, lay dying because we have failed to do what’s necessary to stop the virus,” Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, tweeted Tuesday.Trump’s new Easter goal — to have the country back to normal by Sunday, April 12 — came hours after the New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that the state is expecting a height of coronavirus infections to come in two to three weeks.

Cuomo slams federal responseNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday demanded the federal government take dramatic action to send thousands of stockpiled ventilators immediately to his state first, saying the Empire State’s immense coronavirus caseload threatened catastrophe in days without it.”We haven’t flattened the curve, and the curve is actually increasing,” Cuomo said.

He said New York has more than 25,000 coronavirus cases — at least 10 times as many as any other state — and his state needs 30,000 more ventilators on top of the 7,000 it has.Cuomo wants all of what he called a current federal stockpile of 20,000 ventilators to brace for the coming “apex” in cases in New York, which he says will arrive as soon as 14 days.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday demanded the federal government take dramatic action to send thousands of stockpiled ventilators immediately to his state first, saying the Empire State’s immense coronavirus caseload threatened catastrophe in days without it.

“We haven’t flattened the curve, and the curve is actually increasing,” Cuomo said.

Stricter rules go into effect as people ignore social distancing orders

Americans should stay at least 6 feet away from others and avoid crowds, health officials say. Yet people keep ignoring that guidance.

Sun worshipers have been flocking to beaches. Young people have been gathering at parks as many schools are now closed.

So more states are enacting strict stay-at-home orders. California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey were already practicing them over the weekend.

Connecticut, Louisiana and Ohio joined that list Monday, as did seven counties in Pennsylvania.

And similar orders are expected to go into effect Tuesday in Delaware, Indiana, Michigan, New Mexico and West Virginia.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott directed businesses and not-for-profit entities — to the maximum extent possible — to put into place telecommuting or work-from-home procedures. He told Vermonters to be ready for an upcoming announcement on further restrictions and a stay-at-home directive.

People can still go outside and be active, as long as they stay at a healthy distance from others.

Violating the orders could result in fines in states such as New York and Connecticut.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan ordered the closure of all non-critical workplaces as of 5 p.m. Monday.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker also ordered all nonessential businesses to shut down their physical workplaces from noon Tuesday until April 7. Those employees can still work from home.

Indiana, Michigan and West Virginia joined a growing number of states ordering people to stay home, with a few exceptions.

Trump has activated the U.S. National Guard in three of the hardest-hit states — California, Washington and New York. Almost half of all U.S. cases are in New York state.

Trump said those National Guard units will remain in the command of the states’ governors.

In concert with the state measures, it’s all in an effort to control the deadly virus and prevent a catastrophic overload of the U.S. health care system.

‘A point where people can’t be saved’

Medical workers from coast to coast say they’re facing a dire shortage of masks, ventilators and staff as more doctors and nurses also fall sick.

New York City’s 11 public hospitals will only be able to get through this week before they start reaching “a point where people can’t be saved,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.

Many are calling for Trump to fully use the Defense Production Act to ensure the necessary supply of medical equipment.

More drive-through testing becomes available

While testing has become more available, there are still challenges — and increased strain on the health care system.

About 254,000 Americans have been tested, Vice President Mike Pence said Sunday. That total does not include local hospitals or local health care labs, he said.

Cities are getting creative in helping expedite testing.

Los Angeles is implementing a new web portal that would direct those who might be at highest risk to a testing center.

In Chicago, two Walmart Supercenter parking lots are being designated as drive-thru testing sites.

And a new drive-up testing facility in Miami will give health care workers and first responders priority testing, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.
