More coronavirus cases shouldn’t stop reopening, but ‘wash the hell out of your hands for God’s sake’

Louisiana appears set to face a double whammy of coronavirus outbreaks.

At the beginning of April, as many of its neighbors reported relatively low caseloads, New Orleans and the surrounding areas saw a spike including over 2,700 new cases on April 2 alone.

Now, Louisiana is seeing another surge, though smaller for now. The state reported 1,300 new cases on June 23, while looking at neighbors like Texas and Arkansas which are setting record highs daily.

As of June 25, the state had 52,477 cases in total. “That’s 52- or 53,000 cases too many, of course, but we are a state of 4.6 million people,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) in an interview with Yahoo Finance’s On the Move.

Constantine Maroulis on reopening Broadway: ‘We will be back’

The bright lights of Broadway went dark in March because of the Covid-19 pandemic, costing thousands of jobs and more than a billion dollars in lost revenue. 

“We’ve been absolutely decimated by this pandemic,” Broadway star and Tony-nominated actor and producer, Constantine Maroulis, tells Yahoo Finance’s “The First Trade.”

“It’s not just about the actors,” says Maroulis. “There are so many jobs at stake here. It’s about the front of house, stage crew, designers, production, not to mention the thousands of theaters across the country that are affected by this.”

Broadway theaters closed all of its shows March 12, including 16 that were still scheduled to open. The Tony Awards have been postponed indefinitely, and the pandemic-induced shutdown has proven too costly for some shows. Disney’s Broadway production of “Frozen” has already announced it won’t be returning to the stage when theaters reopen.

Major companies will be ‘more cautious’ than public officials amid reopening: Fast Company Editor-in-Chief

President Donald Trump and some members of the business community have advocated for a rapid reopening to reverse the economic damage caused by the coronavirus outbreak, but major companies will return cautiously even as public officials remove restrictions — according to Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of the business publication Fast Company.

“Business leaders are going to be much more cautious than public officials when it comes to returning their employees to work,” says Mehta, in a newly released interview, taped on April 27.

“I think leaders of big corporations, particularly those that have the luxury of having workforces that do work remotely already, or have the ability to work remotely, they’re going to really tiptoe into this,” she adds.

“I’m hearing, you know, Christmas, early 2021, before most of their workers come back into offices,” says Mehta, a former business reporter at The Wall Street Journal and executive editor at Fortune.
