CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
As the outbreak in China continues to worsen, United States officials have taken precautionary steps to prevent the deadly virus from spreading to America. On January 31, 2020 the U.S. declared the outbreak a public health emergency and President Trump signed an order barring all foreign nationals, other than immediate family of American residents or permanent residents, entry to the United States if they have traveled to China within the past 14 days. This length of time has been determined to be the longest incubation period for the virus.
