Nearly 50 states have now re-opened or are planning to re-open soon. And US agencies are now taking steps to allow each local government to decide on the safety of its citizens.

Though businesses and public establishments are set to re-open in America, there are still health rules that must be applied, according to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC). Here are some of the guidelines released by the agency.

The US CDC has silently released a 60-page health guideline on its website explaining how the country should operate in the midst of the pandemic and how to re-open for the public.

Since America now has nearly 1.6 million confirmed cases and over 90,000 deaths due to the coronavirus, social distancing, proper wearing of masks, and washing of hands with alcohol or any sanitizers are still required for all Americans that will return to the "new normal." Here's how the public is intended to work during re-opening.

How schools will re-open

One of the main questions regarding the re-opening is how populated establishments like schools will operate. According to the agency, not all US schools are allowed to make their students back to school.

Only the ones that have recorded a decrease in COVID-19 cases are suggested to re-open. Once officials decide to re-open their educational facilities, kindergarten through 12th grade have to properly follow social distancing, wearing of masks and sanitizing of hands.

Closing cafeterias and playgrounds are also highly-suggested. Students are asked to eat in their own classrooms to prevent too much roaming around the school.

How bars and restaurants will re-open

Bars, restaurants, and other businesses in the foodservice industry are not suggested to re-open. However, if deliveries, pick-ups, or drive-thrus are no longer an option, setting up rules regarding hygiene in preparing and social distancing inside the stores are highly-suggested.

The CDC may allow restaurants or bars, only for limited capacity and limited seating when dining. Owners are suggested to always sanitize their areas and wipe food storages. Daily check-ups and temperature checks must also be applied to each of their employees.

How mass transportation will re-open

Bus passengers are asked to enter and exit through rear doors only and provide physical guides to monitor if people are following proper social distancing. Ventilation is required so mass transits are encouraged to open their windows unless there's harm prevalent.

CDC guidelines confuse most Americans

As reported via NBC News, a lot of experts think that CDC guidelines are okay but not enough during the pandemic. 

"When we have a pandemic of this nature, people need facts, and they need definitive action statements: 'This is what needs to happen in the presence of an ongoing outbreak,'" said Tener Goodwin Veenema, a professor and visiting scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.
