  • @OP A group of about 50 people gathered this past Sunday at Evangel Cathedral Church in Bowie – and none of them were social distancing.

    They were probably just following the Trump Administration’s concept of social distancing as applied at US airports when screening those returning from areas of high infection!

    Long queues formed as travellers waited for hours for the screenings before passing through customs. (see the picture on the link! )

    President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday that the US is “doing very precise Medical Screenings at our airports“.

    “Pardon the interruptions and delays, we are moving as quickly as possible, but it is very important that we be vigilant and careful. We must get it right. Safety first!”

    Yep!  Crammed together for hours in queues while awaiting coronavirus tests!

    “Very precise” !! ☺
