Months after Donald Trump started insisting we should test less to keep our numbers down, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention update their COVID-19 testing guidelines to say less people should be tested.

According to the new guidelines, anyone without coronavirus symptoms should not get tested, even if they know they were exposed to the virus by someone around them.

Health officials say the order came directly from Trump’s White House and the Department of Health and Human Services.

This is especially troubling as schools fight to stay open. Anyone who contracts the virus is contagious to those around them, whether they experience symptoms or not.

At the time of writing this, we did a Google News search for “coronavirus school positive.” About 90% of the first 50 results were stories from the last 24 hours of schools closing down around the country because of students and staff members testing positive.

The administration isn’t trying to save lives. It’s trying to save face.
