It’s April 28th, 2020, and we’re a few months into the Covid-19 pandemic. Here in Rhode Island we’ve been under a stringent, stay-and-home order for the past 30 days.
States across the country are starting to consider when and how to responsibly lift these restrictions. Yesterday, Governor Raimondo released a framework for how to reopen the state, called “Reopening RI: Charting the Course.” It describes three phases of progression, and the metrics we’ll monitor to know when to move from one phase to the next.
Today we’re joined by Dr. James McDonald, Medical Director of Rhode Island's Department of Health, to talk about that framework and give a picture of what life might look like over the coming weeks and months, depending on how Covid-19 evolves.
