Several states over the weekend began plans to reopen. Georgia allowed barber shops and hair salons, tattoo parlors, gyms and bowling alleys to reopen on Friday. In Oklahoma, salons, barbershops, spas and pet groomers took appointments also on Friday.
Alaska, Texas, Michigan and South Carolina allowed some businesses in some areas to open up as well.
Here's a look at how some states are beginning to reopen today:
- Arkansas: Simple elective surgeries will be allowed beginning today.
- Colorado: Retail businesses with curbside delivery can reopen and elective medical procedures can resume starting today. Businesses such as personal training and dog grooming can reopen with social distancing.
- Kentucky: The state is starting phase one today, which will include restarting diagnostic, radiology, non-urgent, in-person, office and ambulatory visits.
- Minnesota: Gov. Tim Walz says he will allow some businesses to reopen today. The governor said to reopen, businesses must create, share and implement a Covid-19 preparedness plan that outlines measures they are taking to ensure social distancing and worker hygiene.
- Mississippi: Gov. Tate Reeves signed a new “safer-at-home” executive order that takes effect today, replacing the state’s shelter-in-place order. The new safer-at-home order urges all Mississippians to stay home except for essential travel. The most vulnerable people — elderly people with pre-existing conditions and those with compromised immune systems — will have to shelter-in-place.
- Montana: Main street and retail businesses can become operational today if they adhere to requirements to limit capacity and maintain strict physical distancing, Gov. Steve Bullock said.
- Tennessee: Gov. Bill Lee said restaurants will be allowed to open today, and retail outlets on Wednesday at 50% capacity.
