HealthDay Reports: What Will a Reopening of America Look Like?
Experts share their thoughts on how America will reopen in a COVID-19 world and what that would look like in your personal and professional life.
MONDAY, April 20, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Dr. Tom Moore argued forcefully in favor of the stay-at-home order that has helped limit the spread of COVID-19 cases in Wichita, Kan.
Moore appeared before the Sedgwick County Commission on March 24 to testify the order was necessary, and the order went out the very next day.
"Literally the very next day, we started to see more cases pop up," said Moore, director of infection prevention at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. "We just barely nipped it in the bud."
Two weeks later, Moore started being peppered with the question now being debated across the nation.
"Now we're getting a lot of people asking when things will go back to normal," Moore said.
America will reopen for business, but to do so in a safe way will require a massive and ongoing investment in testing and health care, experts say.
