Texas 'Re-opens' on Friday

Texas will take the hit along with the other places like TN, GA and LA. I'll be watching from home.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott says the state wide executive stay at home order will expire April 30th. “It’s done our job, we’re ready to open Texas safely and in phases. We don’t want to reopen just to close again. Phase one begins this Friday, May 1st.”

PHASE 1 of Reopening Texas:
- Vulnerable populations (65YO+) should stay home
- More protection for senior living facilities
- Businesses that can reopen Friday: retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, malls.
- Occupancy limited to 25%

I assume this is another Kemp-like effort to deny folks aren't at work expanded unemployment coverage, and forcing businesses to decide whether to open unsafely or be responsible for 100% of employees' unemployment benefits cost.

At times like these, I'm grateful for having a blue Governor in a red state, one who hasn't lost his mind...

I'm glad someone else is going first.

I don't think anyone quite knows what will result, but I think infections will go up.

I wonder when our medical staff will have proper PPE.

I wonder if these governors had someone do a cost-benefit analysis to find out how many people are OK to kill off before the peasants start complaining.

The NRA had some staff reports that they sent over.

Hong Kong is taking the lead on this. They already have a 'second wave' thanks to relaxing social distancing rules.

As does Singapore.

Singapore's Covid-19 resurgence seems to be clustered in the migrant communities.

The Singapore government, which at first had been praised by medical experts for its rapid and methodical response to the initial wave of coronavirus infections, has since come under scrutiny for its apparent slowness in responding to the spread among migrant workers.
