Opening Up America Again – PART I

Opening Up America Again

By William J. Dunaway

When businesses are going to be able to open up again is in the hands of the Nation’s Governors. The federal government issued guidelines on April 16, 2020 titled “Opening Up America Again.” They call for “gating” criteria before entering into a three phase process of business and school openings. In Florida, the Governor’s office said to expect State guidelines “very soon.” We are watching carefully and will update this posting with a more in-depth review soon.
