All along, we have stressed the importance of covering your face when you’re out in public, thoroughly washing your hands, and staying home when you can. Below is a chart which clearly demonstrates why all these things are so important. If we’re going to keep our economy moving and not regress, we must do those things mentioned above.

As I told you yesterday, this fight is far from over. We must remain vigilant and focused on the tough road ahead if we’re going to stop the spread of COVID-19.
