"Good morning. I'm Dan Watkins. Here's what's happening. President Trump is spending a third night at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland. Doctors there are treating him for covert 19 earlier Sunday, the doctor responsible for the president's health. Dr Sean Conley gave an update on his patient and an update on his own statements, which contained falsehoods about the president receiving oxygen treatment. ABC White House correspondent Rachel Scott with more Mixed messages from positions and the administration raise questions about the true nature of his condition. Conley telling reporters he did administer oxygen to the president at the White House on Friday for about an hour after his blood oxygen drops and he had a high fever sources tell us Trump had trouble breathing was concerned for possible rapid progression of the illness. I recommended the president. We try some supplemental oxygen. See how he'd respond that admission coming after he made false statements while evading repeated questions just 24 hours earlier yesterday and today he was not on Thursday. No oxygen. And the president also tweeting out of video Sunday, promising a surprise visit to his supporters outside the Walter Reed Medical Center. Later, he did just that, leaving the hospital inside an SUV and waving to supporters on the street before returning to the hospital. I also think we're going to pay a little surprise. To some of the great Patriots that we have out on the speak and they've been out there for a long time. Meanwhile, supporters of the president, waving flags and holding signs have been rallying outside Walter Reed Medical Center where the president is being treated. They were glad to catch a glimpse of him when he made that brief drive by. He didn't have to do that. You know,.

"I'm Dan Watkins here's what's happening well your pets at home are loving all the extra attention with the majority of people working from home how has the coronavirus affected them WBZ's Nicole Davis spoke with Mike Kylie from the MSPCA on New England weekend about animal care vet visits adoptions and their efforts to keep pets safe during the pandemic we are dealing with staggering unemployment rates that not even just across the country but right here in Massachusetts to so many people out of work not for a pet that's not a bad thing because you they get more time with their human everybody's home but for the humans that could make it harder to get the essentials to make sure the pets are taken care of right yes absolutely I think that that concern certainly is everybody everybody has had some impact economically and being able to afford to get the care that they need for their animals whether that's food or medical care our goals are certainly there this pandemic to make sure that no animal goes hungry and that all animals are able to stay safe and with their families throughout the this event now how was the MSPCA helping individual owners out if they for example need some food or maybe a letter for their cat yesterday the first thing that we committed to immediately at the start of the endemic in all crisis situations we know that we're dealing with poverty and especially in this type of situation people are isolated especially elderly members of our community we recognize right away that food was going to become a key factor for animals and like I said we want to make sure that no animal go hungry during this pandemic so we have been working with our community outreach department that was established a few years ago and that is typically something that we identify people who may be living in poverty and need assistance and try to provide them with access to affordable resources for their pack keep them happy and healthy we established a lot of contact with Human Services and and in this case active pantry so we immediately started distributing I put the food pantry as well as identifying isolated individuals in our community that needed curbside drop off the food to make sure that their animals are bad we have partnerships with organizations like the Merrimack valley elders services meals on wheels program and so we made sure that meals for pets are distributed throughout that partnership and today we've distributed over a hundred twenty five thousand meals to to people in our community for their animals well that's great but what if somebody's pet has a specific need or maybe they need like a wet food diet or a grain free diet I can you still help them out even though they have those specifications you have to deal with yes we still we have a great partnership with to be able to provide us food and food of all different types that we have been working with different companies to provide special emails well as general mail and people Hey if it's possible for them to come to our adoption center we have a no contact drop off and pick up some food component for donations as well as for filling good or is that people need and and other individual situation better but they make they can reach out to us and work with our community outreach and staff members to identify what their specific needs are and make sure that we can accommodate it because the pandemic somebody veterinary offices are either shut down completely or they have a limit of what they can do for family yes when it comes to their pets what's going on over at angel what's the situation there yes angel we have been working throughout that endemic to make sure that emergency services were provided that animal that ran in jeopardy and I could get the essential services that they needed while also keeping our staff safe throughout which is obviously the other important component of this and with a number of the low cost clinics that have been temporarily shut down for people who are dealing with them income related issues we also so it's like in that so we have our angel a show about locate Connecticut called angel it affects look I think that we also feature adoption centers have been helping with the divisional cases we have shut down for our routine in order to conserve PP for human hospital and and we transitioned our spay neuter clinics in our shelters to be able to help with additional local urgent care we're making sure that if there's an urgent need that we're helping people of all income brackets make sure that their animals are safe during the so how is somebody has a problem should they just go to the closest angel facility they have near them or should they give you a call first reach out on social media houses all working what can can they show up at our our enjoyment Medical Center their main hospital and those are located in Boston in Waltham and we have a triage profit that outside of the building and we're not able to have clients come into the building at this point the retreat triaging outside and then welcome to the patient into the hospital and connecting with the owners Califone but I make recommendations and to trigger packs we certainly can come out there is a true emergency if they are in need of nonemergency but kind of urgent medical care you can reach out to our angel a show about Angela or adduction centers to receive help some like with people getting sick and losing their jobs and sometimes losing their housing what do you see happening right now with surrenders have you see more people giving up their animals as painful as this might be I actually have not which is interesting we anticipated that we would have a third of an acre as a result of endemic but that has proven not to be true at this point which is actually surprising to us and when we have been evaluating the regional and national level and at all areas where a decrease in any cake and I think that has a lot to do with it the current situation people being a homeowner and a diction and I think a generally if your people going out unnecessarily so we're seeing it I decreased intake but more likely it.

"Good morning on Dan Watkins here's what's happening Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker issuing a new executive order on Friday requiring everyone over the age of two to wear a facemask when out in public in Massachusetts the order will go into effect on may sixth the governor went into detail about his decision during his press briefing on Friday as in fact just to see specialists continue to learn more about covert nineteen it's clear that this virus is highly contagious and can be spread from person to person without symptoms what I mean by that is a significant portion of the people who actually carry the covert nineteen virus never show any symptoms at all but they are in fact contagious that means it's possible for a person to infect other close contacts with covert nineteen without knowing that they're infected themselves we'll continue to do everything we can to expand testing to detect high infection rates hotspots in particular communities where we believe we need to be doing more testing and we continued our armor facilities with the supplies that they need to test larger and larger populations and as we've said many times while we work with the health care community to push back on the virus everyone else has a role to play it's equally important and is part of that effort we've already advised everyone should use face masks or face coverings in public spaces when they are unable to practice social distancing as we continue to think about the future and a return to a new normal covering our faces when we cannot practice social distancing is an easy critically important and essential step that everyone can and should take to stop or slow the spread earlier today I signed an executive order requiring residents to use a face covering in public places when they cannot so easily distance from others this story does not apply to children under the age of two or the people who are unable to wear a face mask or face covering due to medical conditions or other DPH issued exemptions I've also directed the department of public health issue additional guidance regarding children between.
