Trump's plan "Opening Up America Again" :
President Donald Trump in his daily press conference on Thursday outlined the outline of a plan called "Opening Up America Again".

This plan provides for three phases of gradual resumption of activities and the return in stages to normal public life "We do not open suddenly, but step by step, with caution," said the President. "America wants to go back to work, and Americans want to go back to work," said Trump.

According to the main lines of this plan, States will be able to move on to the first phase when a drop in the number of cases of contamination with Covid-19, is observed over a period of two weeks, cinemas, restaurants, sports halls, places of worship and gymnasiums could reopen with strict social distancing measures. Bars, schools and daycare centers would remain closed. The plan recommends that the elderly and vulnerable stay at home during this phase and prohibits visits to retirement homes and hospitals. Some employees may return to work in stages.

If no return to the epidemic is observed, phase two could start, with in particular a reopening of schools and the resumption of non-essential travel. Bars could also reopen with certain restrictions, but vulnerable people would still be confined and hospital visits prohibited.

It is only in the third phase, when the absence of a resurgence of the epidemic is confirmed that restrictions on the workplace will be lifted. Vulnerable people could resume a normal social life, while avoiding close contact.

"Governors will have the power to adapt an approach that meets the diverse circumstances of their own states, each case is very different," said Trump.
