But when you go for a walk, run or bike ride you better be more careful. When someone during a run breathes, sneezes or coughs, those particles stay behind in the air.

I am glad in the stimulus package money will be given to small business to make things needed to fight coronavirus instead of sourcing them outside. The economic investment will help the economy just as Clinton invested in small businesses.
