(CNN) — "More than 90% of the US population is currently under a stay-at-home or shelter-in-place order as the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend life as we know it. So when will things go back to normal?
While President Donald Trump has expressed his desire to reopen the nation’s economy by May 1, many of the nation’s governors and mayors who hold the power to enforce closures seem to disagree.
Governors in two regions have announced coalitions in which states will coordinate their economic reopenings: California, Oregon and Washington; and New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
The following list details where states stand in their plan to lift shutdown orders, as of April 15. After each state’s listing is its COVID-19 death toll as of April 14, and the peak date for daily deaths as predicted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Kentucky's is a bit misleading.

We have all ,"non-life sustaining" businesses closed (except the Amazon shoe distribution warehouse), only one person per family in a store at a time, no groups larger than 2 people.

It will be interesting to see how many people have absorbed the lessons in avoiding contamination.

I wonder if there will be a spike in cases after restrictions are lifted?

Yes. I believe there will be a spike, but what can we do? People can't stay home forever. Even after our state lifts it's stay at home order, we will still carry on with what we've already been doing to avoid contact with the virus. Our choice. We don't need some kind of order to force us to use our own good common sense. Never did.

Washington is aligned with Oregon & California now making it even more difficult for us..., so our May 4th deadline isn’t going to happen and our governor has said as much.

Yeah, I don't like this at all. The OR governor Kate Brown (spit) says she'll reopen when we've had ten days of no Wuflu deaths. (Only she won't say WuFlu.) That's ridiculous. Something's gotta give here.

I believe this virus is seasonal. Summer will just naturally slow it down. Now if China doesn’t like what the world is doing by the fall, well I predict another season with a new and improved virus, that will still have the word corona in it.

I think they will get extended depending on the state. They all peak at different times. The carrot on the string just keeps getting pushed out.

Oh yeah. This is getting to be a problem. All these governors are adding conditions out the wazoo that couldn't have been met BEFORE Wuflu, and certainly not after.

Whoops! Governor Fredo just tacked on another two weeks. Let's see if that survives the Trump plan.

Fair use cited so on and so forth.


(Just the relevant portion quoted)

Update (1200ET): In keeping with the general theme of the day, Cuomo focused on how the state plans to 'reopen' its economy - particularly hard-hit NYC. First, he said that the economy is going to need to change, particularly in crowded public places like restaurants. Employer will need to develop new policies governing everyday activities like travel, interactions in the workplace, commuting etc.


Whether or not that does come to pass, Cuomo reiterated that the state is planning to follow four key principles which he first shared yesterday.

Our strategy for reopening New York and bringing people out of their home at the appropriate time:

1) Do no harm: Control the rate of infection
2) Surge/flex: Strengthen the healthcare system
3) Test/trace: Need federal partnership
4) Phased return — not all at once

Adding that businesses will gradually reopen based on priority.

He also announced an extension of the state's shutdown by 2 weeks until mid-May.

If avoiding CASES is the issue, that is one thing. Avoiding DEATHS is something else. The most vulnerable (as we can define it so far) need to be told to stay at home if they don't want to croak horribly. Anyone else who wants to risk it, hat out.

The virus is running this show, not some clutch of government officials. We will learn more about it at whatever cost as time wears on and we may develop herd immunity and a vaccine, or we may not, depending on the virus, how it mutates and what it does inside the human body.

The FRN$ and the fake economy built on it is doomed anyway. Yammering about it is just politics with $ signs.

There is no getting around those two facts, whatever else anyone wants to argue over.

JMHO, YMMV

Your plan would work wonderfully, but it requires politics to actually run. We'd have to end the lockdowns to make your plan happen, which sounds good from here.

Not a plan, just an idea :D Since I have no power to make it happen, I wouldn't call it a plan.

People ought to be free to suicide if they want to. Or risk lifelong debilitation from a strange new disease. Freedom isn't free in more ways than one.....

Yes.

The advice of the epidemiologists and clinicians had best be heeded rather than the advice of economists, bankers, CEOs and politicians or we will negate all progress made to date.

The economy is already in shambles.

Attempting to resuscitate it by pretending that the virus is something other than what it is... by assuming we will acquire "herd immunity" when proof of such is non existent here or anywhere else... is nothing more than suicidal.

I just heard that Maine’s governor Janet Mills (Democrat...) extend another 2 weeks here. Is it just democrats doing the extending?

Our state's shelter in place order goes out on April 20th. But, our Republican Governor may well have to extend it another two weeks. Cases here are still exploding. If it peaks by April 20th, he will reopen. He might as well anyway. Hardly anyone is abiding by the restrictions, and it's not really being enforced. It's left up to the city and county officials for the most part.

WI Governor Kim Jung Evers is saying he may extend his order another full month, well people here are sick of it and the past few days I see people are beginning to just ignore it. Extend it another month and people will just say :fgr2: and just simply ignore it.




The Lockdown Is Loosening Whether Government Likes It Or Not
April 16, 2020 By David Marcus

5-6 minutes


It is the American people, not the government who will decide when this lockdown is over. And they are getting closer to that decision.

New York City has been on lockdown for about a month. Up until this past week the effect has been stark and nearly universal. Most mornings, weather permitting, I sit in my small Brooklyn backyard as the day begins. For weeks the loudest sound has been the silence, quiet streets forming a backdrop for distant sirens and harbor boat horns. That is changing, the white noise of car traffic, like an ocean lapping on a beach has returned.

On my “essential walks” which I take daily to the grocery or the bodega, I traverse an overpass above the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. For the past month traffic has been spare, an emergency vehicle here and there, not much more. That too has changed. While it has not returned to the soul crushing bumper-to-bumper standstill that makes the BQE infamous, the number of cars coursing to and from Staten Island has built up everyday.


What is important and telling about the differences in people’s behavior this week is that no city or state government policies have actually changed. The people of New York themselves, and from accounts across the country in other places as well, have simply decided to loosen the guidelines for themselves. We tend to think of the idea of the government existing through the consent of the governed as being about elections, but it is about more than that, the successful lockdown of New York City was not enforced as much as it was consented to.

This phenomenon is something that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo seems to understand. Cuomo was asked during one of his daily press conferences this week if he is worried that his steady stream of good news about the number of deaths stabilizing instead of increasing and the decrease in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations could give New Yorkers a false sense of security. His answer was basically that he has to tell citizens the truth or he loses his credibility.

Furthermore, Cuomo has admitted on several occasions that with 19 million people living in the New York City metro area, he really is not capable of enforcing many lockdown and social distancing measures. As he puts it, “we can’t arrest 19 million people.” Where that leaves us is in a democratic dance, a push and pull between elected officials and the people who elected them, both sides respectful of the other, but both also possessed of the power shape the virus response.
The state and local government in New York City can see what is happening They know the streets are filling back up. This week it was announced that starting Friday all riders on New York subways and busses must wear masks. This on some level is a concession that New Yorkers are once again descending below Gotham to the turnstiles and edging closer back to their normal lives.

The purpose of the lockdown was made very clear a month ago. It was to flatten the curve of cases in order to ensure that our hospitals were not overrun. That has been achieved, makeshift hospitals and the USS Comfort have thankfully turned out to be precautions we didn’t need. In a story that will disappear from the news media faster than a cockroach under kitchen lights, the Trump administration was proven correct about having the ventilators the nation needed. We achieved the goal at catastrophic economic expense to millions of Americans, and now Americans know it is time to start the return to our new normal.

The country has reason to be proud of its response to the Wuhan virus. If not for the fact that much of our corporate media sees its entire job as trashing Donald Trump and his administration, there would be a more celebratory feeling about this shared success. But even though a well-deserved moment of national pride is probably impossible, the American people know the tide is turning and they are anxious to get back to their lives.

Over the next week or two this balance between the power of the government and the will of the people will continue to shape the coronavirus response. But that balance is beginning to shift in favor of the population, this is America, and it is Americans, not our government that will ultimately decide when this cloud lifts. That is as it should be, and thankfully leaders like Trump and Cuomo understand this. The United States began in earnest with the words “We the people.” The coronavirus lockdown will end as a result of that very same authority.

Oklahoma has been extended to May 6th & there are now 131 deaths.

Yep. Count on it.

Unless the epidemiologists and clinicians are planning to work on a volunteer basis for the foreseeable future, they'd probably better heed the advice of economists, bankers, and CEOs. Otherwise there will be no money with which to pay them....

If they are dead they won't need money.

Kinda between a rock and a hard spot... wouldn't you say?

North to the Future
Alaska's "hunker down" order is likely to be extended, and Anchorage has already been pushed back to May 5. There are criteria to meet and while we aren't there yet, it's hoped we'll be there in another couple weeks (or so).

As a side note, Alaska counts 8 deaths thus far with two of those deaths occurring in Washington state. What I haven't been able to find out (and I've tried) is if those two are also included in the 507 for Washington as of the time of the article. While a small number it does point to possible double counts and other confusion/obfuscation that has likely been an issue all along.

It does increasingly seem that way. If we open up the economy we run the risk of a mass virus outbreak. If we don't, it's food riots and panic as everyone loses their job simultaneously and goes broke.

I can die choking on my own mucus or when some desperate father of three decides I have meat enough on my bones for his family.

If I'm going to die either way, then I think I'd rather die in favor of personal freedom, so open the economy!

In your first paragraph you described two risks. It appears you are better equipped or more comfortable dealing with the first risk.

I am better equipped and more comfortable dealing with the second risk.

I think there are millions upon millions of people with similar distinctions.

I suppose the differences arise due to age, locale, preparation levels and health issues.

Looking at this pandemic from start to finish... finish being when it is nothing more than a memory... I believe we are less than 10 % of the way through... illnesses, deaths, economic repercussions, political/civil upheavals, war(s) and such being taken into consideration.

...and then there are the unforseen issues.
