More blue states move toward reopening

More Democratic governors have taken steps toward reopening their states as the rate of new coronavirus cases starts to slow.

After weekend protests against California’s stay-at-home orders, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that some retail businesses could open as early as Friday as the state enters the next phase of the reopening process. The Democrat said Monday that some bookstores, music stores, toy stores, florists, sporting goods stores, and more can reopen for pickup Friday, the Los Angeles Times reported. Newsom’s guidelines also give local leaders the authority to push their communities further into the reopening process by letting more businesses to open at their own pace instead of following a uniform statewide policy.

Newsom was the first governor to impose a shelter-in-place order in his state, which is the nation’s largest such order. California has received praise, including from the Trump administration, for its handling of the pandemic.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, announced that the state has “flattened the curve” enough that some businesses can start to reopen “as soon as next week.”
