CHICAGO (AP) – The CDC is recommending that gatherings of 50 people or more in the U.S. be canceled or postponed over the next eight weeks because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This recommendation does not include educational institutions, daycare facilities or business operations.

The virus is curtailing many elements of American life.

Officials and businesses on Sunday took forceful measures to halt the virus’s spread.

Theme parks closed, Florida beaches shooed away spring breakers and governors in Ohio and Illinois ordered bars and restaurants shuttered. New York City, New Jersey and elsewhere are considering similar measures.

The nation’s top infectious disease official said he would like to see a 14-day national shutdown imposed, but there is no indication President Donald Trump is considering such a move.
