On Monday, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock ordered residents to stay at home during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“This isn’t a recommendation anymore. People need to stay at home,” Hancock demnaded at a press conference. “We will enforce when and where necessary.”

“However the city reversed its original decree within hours after would-be shoppers formed lines wrapping around the block for both types of establishments.

President Donald Trump has a history of complaining about water pressure that he considers inadequate, from toilets to showers. And the Trump administration, Reuters reports, is proposing new rules that would allow shower heads to increase water pressure.
