1. Wear a mask and encourage Americans to wear masks. ALL of my staff would be REQUIRED to wear masks. If Americans see us wearing them, many will likely follow my lead.
2. Social distancing and handwashing. I would not downplay this infection because I knew about it in Jan. I woud have ZERO events with large crowds without mask or social distancing. I would also DISCOURAGE large gatherings.
3. I would have a plan based on science. This plan would be shared with our governors with their respected inputs and modified when needed. Finally, I would ACTUALLY follow the recommendations of my task force, CDC, Surgeon General, and Dept of Health.
Well all that is being done.
No new ideas after all.
