FDA commissioner issues Memorial Day warning: ‘Coronavirus is not yet contained’

The commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration on Sunday urged Americans observing Memorial Day weekend to follow federal guidelines aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus, saying the deadly virus “is not yet contained.”

Several federal officials recommended continuing social distancing and mask wearing during the holiday weekend.

Go out, wear a mask, stay 6 feet away from anyone so you can have the physical distancing. Go for a run. Go for a walk. Go fishing. As long as you’re not in a crowd and you’re not in a situation where you can physically transmit the virus.
