Dear Commons Community,
During the past hour, I heard the following.
- President Trump suspended travel from Europe to the United States to take effect tomorrow night. There are some details to still be worked out;
- The National Basketball Association (NBA) is halting its season until further notice after one of its players had contracted the virus;
- Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have tested positive for the coronavirus.
This was a lot to absorb in the span of sixty minutes but there can be no doubt about the seriousness of this pandemic. It is about to change our lives. We all have to take the proper precautions now.
