Just because the order is rescinded doesn't mean that people will suddenly start populating restaurants. Let us know how it goes. I think latest polls say 70% of Americans say it's too soon to lift stay at home. And I say that in a state with only about 600 cases.
I seriously doubt the validity of those polls. I think most people who fit into the category of not at risk - 80%+ - want this nonsense over already. This virus is most likely never going away and is mutating into different strains already. Herd immunity is the only avenue left open. We can't shut down anymore, we simply can't afford it financially or psychologically.
In Ontario today the government - as expected - just politicked for an hour on when we're reopening. Which is to say, they didn't say, just we'll see what happens over the next while. That lack of specifics is pissing people off.
