US President Donald Trump says he will release guidelines shortly on steps to reopen the country’s economy and return to normalcy.

He pointed to data showing aggressive mitigation efforts are yielding results in controlling the coronavirus outbreak, and stressed the need to remain vigilant

He said he would announce the guidelines after speaking with state governors on Thursday.

“Tomorrow is going to be a very big day,” he said.

He indicated some states may open before the May 1 goal he had set, given their own outbreak trajectories. “That will be a very exciting time indeed.”
