Resistance to mandatory stay-at-home orders appears to be building in several states. Last week, Minnesota's top-ranking Republican state legislator criticized the Democrat governor's order to extend the North Star State's shutdown until May 4. As of this past Friday, Minnesota's population of 5.6 million saw 145 patients hospitalized and 50 deaths from COVID-19. The median age of those who died was 87 years old.

In Texas, FOX News reports that Gov. Gregg Abbott (R) "plans to sign an executive order [this] week outlining guidelines for how businesses in the state can start to reopen after being shut down over coronavirus." Also on Friday, Abbott insisted at a news conference that ending the Lone Star State's economic lockdown will be done safely, adding: "We will focus on protecting lives while restoring livelihoods. We can and we must do this."
