Americans remain guarded on re-opening the economy. In today’s Harris Poll, they caution against easing-off restrictions too soon: Over 8 in 10 (84%) are concerned this will cause a surge in coronavirus cases while nearly three quarters (74%) say the number of cases should have to go down before Americans can return to work; (67%) say a proper testing place.
