1/ So as states are literally drowning, need to point out that the CDC- your favorite silenced gov org- has a full (actually strong) report out on when to "rebound" & move back phases, w/ public health metrics...

2/ There are actual gating criteria, based on *public health* data, that guide when moving to a next phase is safe, & when that move has to be reversed (one example below).

The guidance has been out since May.

I share this to say-- it *did not* have to be this way.
3/ Many states are spiraling toward recurrent lockdowns.

This time around, *listen to public health expertise*-- reopening was never meant to be easy.

It was always going to be the hardest part.

And locking down initially was literally so that we could get systems in place.
4/ A key part of this was having *surveillance systems* in place that could quickly detect new outbreaks, not relying solely on lagging indicators like deaths or hospitalizations.

Proactively staying ahead of spikes should be one of the biggest parts of the response.
5/ Another *key part* was NOT reopening early.

As you are either fully aware of, or realizing quickly-- the economy v the virus "debate" is BS.

Most of the economy can't run when people are not safe.

People are not safe when the virus is uncontrolled.
6/ There is so much more to be said/done but in short...there has been public health guidance.

State leaders have chosen to systematically ignore it or take major shortcuts to reopen prematurely.

They need to be held accountable. If they try to blame it on you, they're wrong.
