With some states choosing to delay further reopening or even bring back some previously lifted restrictions due to surges in COVID-19, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions.

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 Texas (1=Fewest, 25=Avg.):

  • 18th – Requirement to Wear a Face Mask in Public
  • 28th – Workplace Temperature Screening
  • 1st – State Guidance on Customer Health Checks at Restaurants
  • 1st – Travel Restrictions
