President Trump is being urged to consider calling for nationwide stay-at-home recommendations, something he has so far refused to do, a source close to the White House Coronavirus Task Force says tells CNN.
Among the officials nudging the President to embrace such a move is Dr. Anthony Fauci, the source said. On Thursday night during CNN's Town Hall on the coronavirus pandemic, Fauci said it's time for every state in the country to have stay-at-home orders.
"If you look at what's going on in this country, I just don't understand why we're not doing that. We really should be," Fauci said.
Separately, a White House official tells CNN that the task force is looking to issue mask guidelines at Friday's White House briefing.
The official said it's possible the mask guidelines could slide until Saturday, but the briefing is expected to delve into masks today.
President Trump, Vice President Pence, Dr. Fauci, and Dr. Deborah Birx are all expected to attend the official said.
