WASHINGTON (WFLA) — The White House has canceled Monday’s Coronavirus Task Force media briefing, according to multiple correspondents.

The White House has been holding daily press conferences around 4 p.m. almost every weekday up until today.

The cancellation comes two days after President Trump suggested the briefings are “Not worth the time and effort.”

While the White House has cancelled the Coronavirus Task Force briefing, Pres. Trump is still expected to speak at 4 p.m. from the Rose Garden.
