With spikes in COVID-19 leading some states to pause their reopening processes and some local areas to close down, the personal-finance website WalletHub last week released updated rankings for the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions.

All states have at least partially reopened after keeping non-essential businesses closed for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, some states have recently chosen to pause their reopening processes due to spikes in the disease, and some local areas have even closed down again. In order to determine the states with the fewest coronavirus restrictions despite a surge in cases across the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 18 key metrics. The data set ranges from whether child-care programs and restaurants have reopened to whether the state has required face masks in public and workplace temperature screenings. Read on for the state ranking, additional insight from a panel of experts and a full description of methodology.

To identify which states have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 18 key metrics. The data set ranges from whether the state has any penalties for non-compliance with COVID-19 legislation to whether the state has required face masks in public and health checks at restaurants.

Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.
