I may have misunderstood the question, I do think itís okay to gradually open businesses in calculated ways that are contoured to regions and in a strategic manner that helps mitigate infection spread. IL will likely move into phase 3 out of 5 of its reopening strategy on May 29, and I agree with it. So my gut poll vote was based on my thoughts that itís ok to open businesses in a very gradual careful way, and not that we should open everything ASAP with no strategy. I took the other poll option as meaning keep everything closed indefinitely so long as covid19 is around. Iím overthinking things, welcome to my A N X I E T Y disorder, I guess.

I also think opening gradually is fine, if the the cases started to increase slower and people are wearing masks and keeping distance and Unterstand that that covid isnít over.

What I see in the US is lots of people who donít believe in the danger of covid in the first place and want things to go to normal.
Thatís a really bad.

My city is pretty much open except for like concerts and stuff. The thing that I find interesting is that no small businesses are opening because they think it's too soon. The restaurant I work for is shooting for June 15th. No local restaurants are opening for dine in yet. It's all the poor servers at Applebees and Chili's that now have to put their lives on the line. So I'm not buying that these protesters have the best interest of small businesses in mind. Small businesses are all still scared. So STFU and just admit you miss being able to yell at waitresses and it's all about you.

National owned stores are opened which do tend to be larger. The big stores were likely already opened because they are likely to be hardware and grocery stores which stayed opened.

I take the question in the context of Republicans explicitly saying we need to be willing to sacrifice lives in order to reopen the economy.
No one reached out to me and said, 'As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that America loves for its children and grandchildren?' And if that is the exchange, I'm all in.
