When asked if it was fair to say the White House has postponed all non-coronavirus-related events and travel, deputy press secretary Judd Deere told CNN that there has been a scaling back in activities as they continue to follow the President's coronavirus guidelines.
“The White House is following the guidelines the President announced this week, which includes staying home if you feel sick, engaging in work at home when possible, avoiding social gatherings of 10 or more, using drive-thru, pick-up, or delivery options and much more," Deere said in a statement.
Deere added: "The complex has also implemented temperature checks at all entrances and for those in close contact with the President and Vice President, paused the internship and volunteer program, canceled all east and west wing tours and more to keep the campus safe and healthy.”
But a White House official stressed to CNN that the situation is fluid and that they are constantly evaluating the situation.
"This is a constantly changing, evolving situation," the official said.
For now, large scale social events — things that require logistical support and travel arrangements — are on hold.
There are still events on the calendar in the month of April, for instance, but the schedule is being evaluated "day by day," the official said.
Earlier Friday, the White House announced that the Presidential Medal of Freedom event scheduled for Monday for Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player had been postponed.
