The new cases from Italy appears to have leveled off over the past five days. The number of critically ill may also have leveled off. This is good news and now gives us a real break point. Break point for thge USA has to be about two weeks out at most.
- The CODVID-19 crisis is not an opportunity for partisan advantage. STOP IT!
- One-size-fits-all edicts are what we issue at the first moment of emergency. We must do better moving forward.
- We're in the digital age. Information is power. Use it.
- Not all activities operate at the same level of risk. Assess them individually and phase them back on as quickly as reasonable.
- State-wide orders are inefficient. Rural and desert counties in California with little exposure, for instance, shouldn't receive the same mandates as dense urban areas. Fine tune.
- Slash bureaucratic red tape and remove unnecessary obstacles to working in novel ways.
- Remove disincentives and create no new disincentives to hiring Americans and producing goods here.
- Tailor safety procedures to allow businesses to resume functioning.
- Set aside unneeded regulations.
- Keep emergency programs temporary. Make long-term policy changes through normal due process.
- Phase activity back on as the virus threat diminishes.
- Phase activity back on if, sadly, the virus becomes widespread and social distancing is no longer effective.
- Government is vital, but inefficient. Enable the private sector to provide solutions.
- Harness today's data-driven economy to replace blanket shutdowns with a mosaic of safe activity.
- Be kind, caring, compassionate, appreciative, polite and helpful to others.
