Type of Justification: Advice of INTERNAL government advisory committee or group
Source of Evidence or Justification: National – academic, National – government
Evidence/Justification: The President regularly references “our scientists”. In this case, it is generally understood that he has received this advice from an internal COVID-19 expert task force, whose membership is not available publicly. One of the most public of these experts is the Presidential Advisor on Infectious Diseases, Dr. Monica Musenenero. It is reasonable to assume that these two sources are responsible for the justification of the decision.
