Updated: California Is the State with the 2nd Most Coronavirus Restrictions – WalletHub Study


With some states continuing to reopen while others have paused or reversed course due to surges in COVID-19, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions, as well as accompanying videos and audio files.

To identify which states have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 17 key metrics. Our data set ranges from whether the state has any penalties for non-compliance with COVID-19 legislation to whether the state has required face masks in public and health checks at restaurants. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.

Coronavirus Restrictions in California (1=Fewest, 25=Avg.):

  • 16th – Requirement to Wear a Face Mask in Public
  • 18th – State Guidance on Customer Health Checks at Restaurants
  • 15th – Travel Restrictions
  • 51st – Large Gatherings Restrictions
  • 50th – Strictness of “Shelter in Place” Order
  • 48th – Reopening of Non-Essential Businesses
  • 51st – Reopening of Restaurants and Bars
  • 16th – Working from Home Requirements/Recommendations

Note: Rankings are based on data available as of 12:30 p.m. ET on Monday, September 14, 2020.
