With all states gradually reopening but monitoring for any spikes in COVID-19 cases that would impact their reopening plans, WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions, as well as accompanying videos and audio files.

To identify which states have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 16 key metrics.

Coronavirus Restrictions in Florida (1=Fewest, 25=Avg.):

17th – Requirement to Wear a Face Mask in Public
1st – Reopening of Child-Care Programs
45th – Travel Restrictions
2nd – Large Gatherings Restrictions
7th – Strictness of “Shelter in Place” Order
23rd – Reopening of Non-Essential Businesses
18th – Reopening of Restaurants and Bars

Our data set ranges from whether child-care programs and restaurants have reopened to the presence or absence of a “shelter-in-place” order. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.
