Every state’s rules for staying at home and social distancing

To what degree will the State attempt to make medical martial law permanent?

Most of the United States is in lockdown as people are staying inside, keeping clear of the novel coronavirus that has killed about 41,000 Americans as of April 20. Nonessential businesses are closed, any social gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited, and as of April 16, stay-at-home orders are in effect in all but eight states.

To slow the spread of the novel coronavirus and save lives by keeping the local health care systems from being overwhelmed, each state has implemented its own set of rules — at different times and at varying degrees or restrictiveness.

To determine each state’s social distancing rules and restrictions on movement, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed executive orders from governors since the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in the United States at the end of January.
