The effects of coronavirus will be widespread in both our economy and the public health. As states across the nation begin to reopen, it will be incumbent upon our leaders to balance the health and safety of their citizens, while mitigating the social costs of a partially opened economy. It is time for our leaders to balance the needs of their citizens and move the country forward.

President Trump and Governor Ducey have developed a blueprint for safely reopening our economies. They established measurable benchmarks for safely opening the economy while adhering to CDC guidelines. Their pragmatic approach will allow for the economic recovery to be swift and sustainable. President Trump and Governor Ducey deserve our appreciation for protecting both lives and livelihoods.
