On May 2, Alaa Elassar of CNN reported that 97% of Americans are still under stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders due to the coronavirus.
On May 3, Remy Tumin and Judith Levitt of The New York Times said that nearly half the states in the country will be reopening this week, many of them in phased processes.
