FOX Business’ Stuart Varney, in his latest “My Take,” said that reopening parts of the country amid coronavirus looks like it’s underway and likely to begin in May.
“That’s what the president wants and that’s what federal agencies are planning for,” he said. “We’re getting an early look at what that reopening might look like.”
Varney said FEMA and the CDC have created a strategy for reopening. According to a report from The Washington Post, it would be a gradual reopening, at first restricted to areas of the U.S. where the virus has not “spread significantly,” he said.
