Officials are worried that they “went too far in allowing public health experts to set policy,” Bennett said.
They are eyeing the expiration of the 15-day “Stop the Spread” CDC guidelines as a possible pivot point – eager to restart the economy. Pence signaled as much yesterday, saying the CDC will issue new guidance today allowing some essential personnel to return to work sooner.
