COVID-19: What Dr. Fauci says the U.S. really needs to reopen safely – National Geographic

To prevent future surges, Americans need to become more unified about following public health guidance and take sequential steps to return to schools and businesses.

AMERICA’S PANDEMIC CONVERSATION has entered a rut, and it’s easy to understand why. After stay-at-home orders blunted this spring’s first surge, much of the United States moved to reopen in the summer, which only spawned more outbreaks.

Now, as autumn approaches, along with the prospect of spending more time indoors, the nation stands somewhat divided on whether to lockdown again or continue reopening. About 60 percent of Americans support the prospect of new stay-at-home orders, NPR reports, but nearly the same proportion is willing to spend time at malls, churches, and restaurants or send their child back to in-person schooling.
