Surgeon General: White House Coronavirus Guidelines Should Be Considered As National Stay-At-Home Order

The Hill reports:

Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Wednesday that the White House coronavirus guidelines should be interpreted as a national stay-at-home order. “My advice to America would be that these guidelines are a national stay-at-home order,” he said on NBC’s “Today” show.

His comment was in response to a question about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who has said he was waiting for a directive from the White House to initiate a stay-at-home order for his state. “Governors have tough choices to make. They have to decide whether or not they feel their citizens will listen to them without a stay at home order,” Adams said.
