State Regulations for Opening
Below are links to each state's regulations regarding opening post-COVID-19.
Alpha by State
Businesses are almost universally reopening under restrictions, such as allowing fewer customers, requiring workers and customers to wear masks, and enforcing social distancing. Even as governors lift orders, stricter local orders may remain in place by city or county.
Governors and public health officials across the country have implemented stringent measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19, such as stay at home orders. Yet even as businesses begin to reopen, face coverings are likely to remain popular as a preventative measure.
As of May 20, each state that had imposed a stay-at-home order or shelter in place had begun lifting the restrictions of businesses and public spaces.
People were allowed, in some places, to go back to restaurants and offices and places of worship. Some people have ventured out; some people continue to stay home as much as possible.
State officials and health experts say they want to see expanded testing, tracking contacts of people who had the virus, improved treatment options and vaccine development when they consider moving on to the next step of the reopening process.
