If we reopen without containing the virus, we are likely to have to shut down again. If we control spread and then open, the economy will begin to recover. Countries that successfully reopened stopped the virus first. They used universal mask policies to control the spread, plus testing and contact tracing to quickly spot and contain any new outbreaks. Now they have open schools, travel and sports. We can too.
