From Montana to Massachusetts, states approach economic restarts at different speeds

As governors around the country weigh reopening their economies amid the fight against COVID-19, a patchwork of stay-home orders and other business restrictions exist.

Some states are moving faster to reopen, like Georgia, where the governor is allowing nail salons, bowling alleys and other businesses to reopen Friday. Other states such as New Hampshire are considering extensions. Montana’s governor has given the green light to schools to open back up in the coming weeks.

And some states, such as Wyoming and South Dakota, never instituted a stay-home order to begin with.
