Fallon, small business owner, Georgia
“As a small business owner who had zero income in the month of April, I get the importance of reopening, but at the same time, it’s crazy that you aren’t going to go by the shelter-in-place that you already ordered.
“I mean, we haven’t even peaked yet, so it makes no sense to me. It’s just dangerous.
“I’ve decided that I will probably be scared whenever I reopen since my son struggles with asthma. So I’m going to do this on my terms.”
