Moving Forward: States Open for Business

As the COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the U.S., almost every American has seen their life impacted. Stay-at-home orders, business closures, significant economic/financial hardship, and the need to distance from others have changed the nature of many states and the way they do business. As infection and hospitalization trends have increased, states are in varying stages of pausing their reopening plans or rolling back earlier reopenings. Major differences have emerged between regions and localities in how quickly and the extent to which they are restarting their economies. Each week, TVB combs through state government websites and local media to summarize each state’s status and reopening processes. Focusing on how industries like manufacturing, office-based business, retail, restaurants, personal care services are being regulated state-by-state demonstrates the differences in the virus’ impact across the country.
