As many countries around the world have flattened the curve of COVID-19 cases, the United States has continued to hit new record highs over the last week, with California, Florida and Texas still at the forefront of the pandemic in the US.
On July 13th, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a return to statewide restrictions on indoor dining and bars, theatres, zoos and museums, in addition to the closure of gyms, churches, hair salons, malls and other businesses in the 29 counties on the state’s monitoring list, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Although this is a necessary precaution to stop the spread of the coronavirus, many economists are worried that the re-closure of businesses in California and in other states will hurt business owners and the economy even further.
In a recent interview with Fox Business, Dallas Federal Reserve President Robert Kaplan claimed that mask-wearing is key to ensuring a faster economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown.
Whether your state has been faced with re-closure and restrictions or not, it is essential to encourage and normalize the widespread use of face coverings to ensure the health and wellness of those around you, as well as the health of the economy.
