The Map: Where There Are Lockdowns and Partial Lockdowns in the United States...

...and where there is still some freedom:

As of Wednesday, 36 US states, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico have issued stay-at-home orders, reports Business Insider.

The state-wide orders are represented on the map above in red.

Partial state lockdowns are also represented in pink on the map — marking the states in which at least one city or county has issued a stay at home order to its residents.

Together, the state and city populations affected by some kind of stay-at-home order hold approximately 277 million people — about 85% of the US population.

The 35 states with stay-at-home orders are: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania; Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, according to BI.

The list of cities with local orders includes Birmingham, Alabama; Atlanta, Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, Blakeley, Carrollton, Chamblee, Clarkston, Decatur, Doraville, Dunwoody, Forest Park, and Savannah, Georgia; Tupelo and Oxford, Mississippi; St. Louis, St. Joseph, and Kansas City, Missouri; Edmond, Stillwater, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Norman, Oklahoma; Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina; Amarillo, Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock, and San Antonio, Texas; Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah; and Jackson, Wyoming.

And at least four states and one territory — Alabama, Guam, Nevada, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania — have ordered nonessential businesses to close but haven't asked all residents to stay home.



  1. I spend time daily advancing the cause to keep Iowa open. Each day the two main media outlets tweet the Iowa Governor has stated no shelter-in-place, with much negative reaction that people want to be overlorded into place. I respond with the various articles that dispute effectiveness and need for shelter-in-place, including the leaders of two of the main hospitals who have stated they are against such a policy:

    U Iowa Health Care, Mercy hospitals leaders urge against shelter-in-place order, which would be a hyper over-reaction causing tremendous harm to society mid & long term, including deaths to the most vulnerable who rely upon functioning economy. @IAGovernor

    Also see latest from a NYC Font Lines ER Doctor:

    NYC Front Lines ER Doctor: If you wash hands & don't touch face, you won't get this disease. Don't have to be scared of outside world & scared of your neighbor. Stop spread of COVID-19. Keep hands clean, don't touch face, wear mask avoids touch @IAGovernor

    Keep up the fight!

  2. IMO if this were a real pandemic, government mandated lockdowns would not be needed. If we could take what the establishment says as mostly accurate and their solutions had been beneficial in the past, most people would not need to be forced to protect themselves and others.
