After weeks of shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, the nation has begun to slowly open up. President Trump declared May 1, when experts warned that Opening the economy too soon and confronting an enormous rise in deaths will inevitably scare everyone and lead to the worse economic setback in modern history. Some southern states opened last week. Beaches and state parks are reopening to visitors, spurring concerns about overcrowding. The first barbers have returned to work, masks over their faces. Some restaurants are getting ready to serve customers again.
