As Covid case numbers and hospitalizations decline in the U.S. and the vaccination rate continues to rise, several states have begun to lift orders closing businesses and mandating masks. But these moves have also been criticized by public health officials who say such moves are foolish. But did the pandemic ever justify statewide restrictions on movement and commerce in the first place?

Join ARI fellow Ben Bayer as he discusses this topic with ARI senior fellow Onkar Ghate on the next episode of New Ideal.
