It's Political: At this point I guess that the majority of communities will be back to work by early June. This is really a wild guess as the decisions will be almost entirely political and not based upon public health, which is about balancing multiple health risks, not just one.

Uncertain: As the US has begun to open back up there are many people who continue to religiously engage in social distancing and others who have aggragated in large crowds without masks/ face covers. The later have caused a number of superspreader events.
