This afternoon in remarks given to the media President Trump said that he is giving consideration to putting in place an “enforceable quarantine” for New York, parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.
Before leaving for Joint Base Andrews, the President told reporters, “We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot- New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined. I’m thinking about it right now.”
“We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short term two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and parts of Connecticut,” remarked the President.
Currently New York is the epicenter of the Chinese Cornoavirus outbreak in the United States with over fifty two thousand confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to latest reports. New Jersey has over eight thousand confirmed cases and Connecticut has over twelve hundred.
The President suggested that the quarantine would be travel-based, mean that people inside the quarantine areas would be limited to travel only within the quarantine areas and travel outside would be restricted.
After landing at Joint Base Andrews, President Trump tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE of developing “hot spots”, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.”

President Trump said he would talk with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo about the potential federal quarantine.
SCOTUS Hands Trump Administration Huge Pro-Life Win
The US Supreme Court on Wednesday endorsed a plan by President Donald Trump’s administration to give employers broad religious and moral exemptions from a federal mandate that health insurance they provide employees covers women’s birth control under the Affordable Care Act.
The court ruled 7-2 against the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which challenged the legality of the Trump administration’s 2018 rule that weakening the so-called “contraceptive mandate” of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, commonly called “Obamacare”.
The opinion was written by Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Elena Kagan filed a concurring opinion in the judgment, in which Stephen Breyer joined. Ruth Bader Ginsburg filed a dissenting opinion, in which Sonia Sotomayor joined.
“We hold today that the Departments had the statutory authority to craft that exemption, as well as the contemporaneously issued moral exemption. We further hold that the rules promulgating these exemptions are free from procedural defects,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote. “We hold that the Departments had the authority to provide exemptions from the regulatory contraceptive requirements for employers with religious and conscientious objections. We accordingly reverse the Third Circuit’s judgment and remand with instructions to dissolve the nationwide preliminary injunction.”
The two consolidated cases that the SCOTUS heard were Little Sisters of the Poor v Pennsylvania and Donald J Trump v Pennsylvania.
