More than a dozen states are continuing their gradual reopening this week. They are easing strict lockdown measures that shuttered businesses and brought the daily lives of millions of Americans to a halt for more than a month.
States across the country believe they have “flattened the curve” of infections enough to phase in their economies under new health guidelines and restrictions to protect citizens.
The U.S. on Sunday recorded 731 virus-related fatalities, which is its lowest daily number of deaths since March 29 and the first time under 1,000 deaths were reported in 42 days. As of Monday morning, there were more than 1.3 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and more than 79,000 deaths in the U.S.
Dozens of states have already begun lifting restrictions to varying degrees over the past weeks. The following states are either lifting measures for the first time or continuing their phased road map to reopening this week: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina and West Virginia.
