Connecticut will reopen some businesses on May 20, as coronavirus-related hospitalizations continue to decrease.
This may be good news for business owners and unemployed workers, and for those looking for a glimmer of light at the end of a long tunnel.
It may be scary for people with greater risk for having severe illness from COVID-19 and front-line workers with greater exposure.
The bottom line is that we still don't fully understand this virus. And, not all of the 40 states set to reopen are prepared to scale up the testing, tracing, and isolating necessary to prevent a spike in the curve.
