Where U.S. COVID-19 Cases Are on the Rise

The pandemic appears far from over

Nearly all 50 U.S. states have begun to allow some businesses to reopen and residents to move more freely, but only 14 states have met the federal government’s guidelines for lifting measures aimed at fighting the pandemic, according to an analysis by Reuters.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended states wait until their daily number of new COVID-19 cases falls for 14 days before easing social distancing restrictions.

While all 14 states saw at least two weeks of declining cases, nine states saw cases fall for four or more weeks, according to a Reuters analysis of data from the COVID Tracking Project, a volunteer-run effort to track the outbreak.
