As states begin to relax social distancing restrictions and restart their economies, the post-COVID-19 landscape has started to take shape. That landscape still looks rocky at the moment. Most states are taking phased approaches to the reopening of their economies. Previously announced reopening dates continue to be pushed back. This leaves access to public services in a wait-and-see mode with state officials essentially saying “don’t call us, we’ll call you.” Though it is expected that many states will reopen more fully this summer, others are waiting to see how things go with the return to school in September.
