WASHINGTON D.C. (NBC) – As states cautiously move toward reopening their paralyzed economies, there’s new reporting Wednesday that FEMA and the Centers for Disease Control have created a public health strategy to guide a safe reopening. It includes ramping up the production of testing kits and protective gear.
The new guidelines obtained by the Washington Post specify that states should not reopen before May 1. President Trump, meanwhile, says he thinks some could open sooner, though he’ll leave the timing and approach up to each governor.
Dr. Anthony Fauci says there will be more cases as states reopen and we’ll need to respond quickly.
“Identify, isolate, get out of circulation, and do adequate and appropriate contact tracing as new cases arise,” Dr. Fauci explains.
