U.S. President Donald Trump listens to White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx during a press briefing on the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic with members of the Coronavirus Task Force on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at the White House in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said Thursday that federal officials are developing guidelines to rate counties by risk of virus spread, as he aims to begin to ease nationwide guidelines meant to stem the coronavirus outbreak.

In a letter to the nation's governors, Trump said the new guidelines are meant to enable state and local leaders to make "decisions about maintaining, increasing, or relaxing social distancing and other measures they have put in place." States and municipalities would still retain authority to set whatever restrictions deem necessary.
