More U.S. states are starting to ease lockdown measures imposed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Among them is Texas, which is allowing nonessential businesses to start reopening.


Other states, though, are holding firm. California Governor Gavin Newsom announced beach closures in Orange County over concerns about crowds, and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has extended the state’s emergency declaration. New York’s governor announced schools in the state will stay closed for the rest of the school year.

More than 64,000 people have died of the virus in the U.S., and more than 238,000 have died across the globe.
