And when, if you care to predict. Montana? Oklahoma? Arizona? I will go with all three of the above, and all on the same day May 1. But, does anyone have a better guess as to who reopens to the public first, and why?

I think Nevada will be the first major jurisdiction because the state depends on the tax income.

i would say south dakota, such as deadwood. could also possibly be washington, since the curve supposedly hit there first, meaning it will end first. but i do think states with a republican gov as opposed to a democratic governor will care far more about reopening businesses and the economy

I seriously doubt Oklahoma opens on May 1. We're on stay-at-home until April 30th. Our peak is not projected until the last week in April. It will take weeks after that for things to slow down and for companies to begin restaffing and start opening up. I think June 1st at the earliest is when non-essentials will start opening back up again; maybe even June 15th.

And Dallas county is May 20, which drives most of the border casinos' revenue.

I hope that no states go rouge and open back up significantly before federal guidelines. Being that interstate travel isn't banned, any state opening early is cause for major concern.

Wasn't your governor trying to shut them down, or making some threats or power play or something?

Big goal of mine, to go visit Oklahoma, before I get too old. You guys have an amazing amount of casinos.

We can have another bet that we will forget.... Nevada is behind some other areas as far as when the peak of deaths will be. Probably a sparsely populated area will open first...

That’s hard to say since it assumes a level playing field, where the conditions are the same. Clearly, they’re not.

But if the assumption were true, I’d say Nevada since so much of the economy is tied to gambling and tourism.

But in reality, Nevada might be towards the tail end, in an effort to prevent new spread of C-19 by inviting tourists.

Bottom line: Dunno.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗
