On Friday, April 24, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that, nationally, visits to outpatient providers and emergency departments for illnesses with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 continued to decline and are below baseline in many areas of the country.

The logic behind widespread U.S. lockdowns has come under fire in recent days, as Tokyo reported its lowest daily level of new coronavirus cases in more than three weeks, a fresh sign that Japan may be succeeding in suppressing the outbreak without compulsory social distancing.

Last week, Governor Larry Hogan introduced the Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery, the state’s proposed guide for reopening.  On Monday, Governor Hogan instructed the Maryland Department of Health to begin releasing COVID-19 nursing home data throughout the state.  That data should start being released over the next few days.  The governor has not yet given any indication as to when the state will reopen.

Georgia, Oklahoma, Alaska, and South Carolina have already allowed some businesses to reopen, according to the BBC. Colorado will allow curbside retail pickup to begin on Monday, with hair salons, barbershop and tattoo parlors allowed to reopen on Friday. Tennessee will allow restaurants to reopen on Monday, the same day that Mississippi’s mandatory lockdown order expires. Montana’s governor has allowed churches to reopen starting on Sunday, with social distancing measures still required. Restaurants and schools will be allowed to reopen on May 7th.
