Trump Extends Guidelines to April 30; Delaware 14-Day Out-of-State Quarantine; 3 Shootings in Philly

President Donald Trump extended the national coronavirus guidelines until April 30. The President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America - 15 Days to Slow the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) were introduced on March 16 and were set to expire tomorrow, Monday, 3/30. They include guidelines for social distancing, seeking medical attention, and practicing good hygiene. The president had 'aspirational' hopes to be able to start relaxing some of these guidelines in parts of the country by Easter, 4/12, to get the economy moving. This decision to extend the guidelines is more in line with the reality that the outbreak still hasn't peaked. Members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force extolled that reality on Sunday news programs. Dr. Anthony Fauci said that there could be over 100,000 deaths and millions of infections, but didn't want to be held to that number. Dr. Deborah Birx said, "No state, no metro area, will be spared." These are voluntary guidelines from the CDC. Many governors of states have enacted tougher restrictions regarding activities within their states and would make the decisions when to resume those activities.

Delaware Governor John Carney has issued an order that anyone who travels to Delaware from out-of-state must immediately self-quarantine for 14-days or the duration of their stay, whichever is shorter. If you have come to Delaware in the last 14-days you must immediately self-quarantine for the remainder of the 14-days since your arrival date. It does not apply for anyone who is simply passing through the state. It also does not apply for anyone coming to work for an essential business or to care for a family member. If you live out-of-state and work for an essential business, you are strongly encouraged to work from home if you can. "Now's not the time to visit Delaware. We're facing a serious situation here that is getting worse," said Governor Carney. "Delawareans need to stay at home, and anyone from another state visiting Delaware should immediately self-quarantine for two weeks. Everyone needs to take this threat seriously. Our goal is to limit a surge in COVID-19 cases that would overwhelm our hospital system. We'll get through this - but everyone needs to pitch in."


Stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines have not stopped crime and violence in Philadelphia. Continuously changing news surrounding the coronavirus have simply pushed crime out of the headlines. Homicides are up 16% year-to-date (3/28) from this time last year. There have been 88 homicides so far in 2020, as opposed to 76 in 2019. See Philadelphia Crime Data at:

On Sunday, 3/29, there were three separate shootings resulting in two deaths. The first shooting happened around 3 p.m. near 49th and Pentridge Streets. A 31-year-old man was shot several times. He was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in critical but stable condition. The second shooting happened shortly before 4:30 p.m. on the 4700 block of Paschall Avenue. A 22-year-old man was sot in the torso and right leg. He was taken to Penn Presbyterian where he was pronounced dead. The third shooting happened at 6:35 p.m. on the 700 block of East Locust Avenue. He was taken to the Einstein Medical Center where he later died. No arrests have been made in any of these shootings.
