While Trump keeps mentioning that #'s are coming in better than projected, Governor Cuomo already mentioned today in his daily presser the Tri-State will be working in a coordinated fashion in taking steps to re-open their three respective states.
Being that the POTUS cannot mandate what States re-open I utilize logic to how the country might get back to work in 2-4 phases.
We can all look at the coronavirus on a union map. Although it will be ideal to re-open in a bi-partisan kind of way, reality of the divide might make that possibility more remote.
Please let me know what Blue States might join with Red States. For example, I saw how Republican Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is on the record sharing the POTUS desire to lift restrictions sooner than later in her state. Then maybe Georgia outside Atlanta, parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, Wyoming and Utah are other red states that might turn out to be among the States that could go live in Phase 1.
