He added if people keep following the basic rules, we can come out of the fall and winter looking good.       TikTok is threatening legal action following President Trump's executive order to ban the app from doing business in the U.S. Trump's executive order blocks transactions with the Chinese-based app's parent company starting in 45 days. His order also states security concerns with the social media platform.       The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will have less people attending this year due to concerns of COVID-19.
