Federal Guidelines for "Opening Up America Again"

On Thursday, April 15, President Donald Trump released federal guidelines for “Opening up America Again,” his three-phase plan for getting the country back to work and more regular social interaction.

Contrary to a unilateral nationwide effort that he had previously touted, “Opening Up America Again” will rely heavily on governor discretion to implement county and state and wide.

Calling it a “gradual process” Trump did not specify any dates, but instead set safety requirements to be met at each phase.  Core state preparedness responsibilities hinge on testing and contact tracing, healthcare system capacity and plans to protect the health and safety of workers in critical industries, those living and working in high-risk facilities like senior care facilities, and employees and users of mass transit. They also address social distancing and face covering protocols and steps to limit and mitigate rebounds and outbreaks by returning to previous phases. There is an emphasis on protecting vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with health conditions that would put them at greater risk.
