COVID-19 State Reopening Guide

States have shifted the focus of their COVID-19 response from managing the public health crisis to the economic recovery phase. States have started allowing certain businesses to open, and most have announced plans for a phased reopening of the economy. MultiState’s team has been sifting through the data to provide an “openness rating” for each state based on eleven factors. Not every state is starting their reopening phase from the same position, so a condensed, objective rating will allow you to accurately compare the "openness" of each state.  Please see Multistate’s comprehensive state reopening guide ranking states from 1 to 50 based on degree of reopening, based on 11 factors, with associated maps/charts/graphs. The rankings will be updated daily.
