COVID-19 Virus Mitigation Turns a Corner In U.S.

The “new normal” created by the COVID-19 pandemic nationally now begins to look more like a “new tomorrow” as communities begin to re-open America.

The news is mixed as to good and not so good. As June begins, the U.S. economy is looking up after being devastated by this diabolical virus. Unemployment is headed down even after reaching lower levels than expected.

On the negative side, 21 states are now showing increases in new COVID-19 cases. These are mostly states with large urban population centers.
