Student Loans and Standardized Testing Halted Amid COVID-19

President Donald Trump was joined by Vice President Mike Pence and other officials at the podium today announcing the latest moves in the fight against COVID-19.

There will be no standardized testing and you won’t have to make your student loan payments as the United States deals with COVID-19.

California and New York states have almost entirely locked down – ordering non-essential workers to stay home. Trump says he won’t make a similar national order – instead leaving it up to individual states – referencing Midwest states that aren’t dealing with the same situations.

Activation of the Defense Production Act means private businesses may be ordered to shift production to items like protective masks.

How would you grade the administration’s response? Have they failed in mitigating panic?
