On Instagram, Robert Reich writes:

We’ve tried reopening. Cases came surging back. We should instead:

  • Provide full jobless benefits and rent relief (stop bailing out investors).
  • Send only essential workers to the job. Require everyone else to shelter in place.
  • Enforce a mandatory mask policy when outside in public.
  • Provide free testing, with next-day results.
  • Fund universal contact tracing.

All of August.

Agreed.
