At least 45 states have already eased coronavirus restrictions in some way, and three more are doing so today. It’s a promising sign for the economy, even as many acknowledge the risks.

In Wisconsin, restaurants and bars began hopping just hours after the state Supreme Court struck down the governor’s stay at home order, effectively re-opening the state. President Trump called it a win. Many in Wisconsin felt relieved.

Resident Deborah Glembocki is happy about the change, saying people should have the right to make their own decisions. “We should be able to decide if we want to go out or not,” she said.

“If they don’t feel it’s good to come out yet—more power to them—but I hope they respect my feelings. I would like to come out and start getting the economy going again,” said business owner Chad Arndt
