This chart indicates actions that states have taken to reopen certain business sectors previously restricted, deemed nonessential and/or required to close. To provide a general understanding of the current operating status for reopening businesses, such actions are classified according to the key below. Columns are divided by industry sector. Classifications/terminology of certain businesses may vary state-to-state. Please note this list is not exhaustive of statewide actions. This list addresses statewide guidance for businesses and does not address county or municipal guidance. State reopening actions will continue to be tracked and updated within this chart. You might also find interest in this page which provides summaries of public health criteria in reopening plans.

Suggested changes to this list should be directed towards Rebecca DiPietro (rdipietro@nga.org), Lacy Adams (ladams@nga.org), and Jeff Locke (jlocke@nga.org).
