At least 31 states will partially reopen over the next few days as a patchwork of coronavirus response plans that vary from one state to the next goes into effect.
- California Gov. Gavin Newsom is ordering beaches and parks closed and said the reopening of schools and businesses is still “weeks away.”
- Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, meanwhile, extended the stay-at-home order until May 15.
- Florida has two different approaches within its borders: Restaurants and retail shops can let customers inside, at reduced capacity, starting Monday — but not in South Florida’s populous Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, home to 6 million people.
- West Virginia’s dentists can go back to work Thursday; its restaurants, churches, and services like salons must wait until Monday.
- Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who allowed some businesses to open Friday, will ease social distancing restrictions Thursday, his spokeswoman told CNN.
