Your impression about US lockdown vs. going back to work is both correct and incorrect.

A number of states are opening things up - these states either barely or never really locked down to begin with. Mindless cretins saying that they'd rather die than be "oppressed" into some sort of social responsibility.

Others, like NY, have within the last couple of weeks, had their governor mandate face coverings (masks, etc.) if you are going to be out of your home in any situation where social distancing would be compromised - and you cannot enter any store (or work in one) without said covering.

NY's case rate and mortalities have been going down - roughly half the mortalities/day they were at the peak. Occasionally, groups of nitwits, for various reasons didn't think it included them. Uniformly, they're paying the price for that. NJ is also now experiencing a downturn.

As for places Georgia, N/S Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa - I guess as long as Tyson can make some money, the locals are basically expendable. Well - the mayors of the affected towns don't think so, but their governors do.

Thus - as there are 50 essentially independent states in such matters - you can say nearly anything and find an example of it.
