Multiple states put halt on re-openings amid continued Coronavirus outbreaks
While Utah and Oregon are making adjustments, many are going forward with re-openings.

One by one, states are weighing the health risks from the virus against the economic damage from the stay-at-home orders that have thrown millions out of work over the past three months. And many governors are coming down on the side of jobs, even though an Associated Press analysis finds that cases are rising in nearly half the states.
