The order from the southwestern state, which comes into effect at 8am on March 24, means the number of US states ordering residents to stay at their residences more than doubled on Monday to 15. Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, West Virginia and Wisconsin made such announcements earlier in the day. The 15 states where those orders are effective or about to come into effect cover just over 42 per cent of the population in the 50 states and District of Columbia. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the US has soared to more than 41,000 as of Monday, 579 of whom have died, according to John Hopkins University. That is more cases than any country after China and Italy, and the number of people who test positive is expected to continue to rise rapidly as the US ramps up the ability to test people with symptoms. New York is the hardest-hit state, with the number of confirmed cases rising by 5,707 in the past 24 hours, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Monday, bringing the total number of cases to 20,875. Some individual cities and counties have issued stay at home orders, even though the states have not. As such, the proportion of the population affected by those restrictions probably exceeds 42 per cent. Texas, the US's second most-populous state, does not have a stay at home order in place, but local media reported the capital, Austin, was expected to take this route tomorrow, following in the footsteps of Dallas and Waco. https://www.ft.com/content/f96ada9f-bd2a-39a7-8b59-c4170f5a1101

Unemployment insurance in the U.S. is state-specific, but overseen by the U.S. Dept. of Labor. On average, unemployment insurance replaces ~50% of lost wages for a finite period of time. The CARES Act, signed into law on 27 March 2020, boosted unemployment benefits by supplementing state benefits with $600 per week, and expanding eligibility to individuals that normally don't qualify for unemployment insurance (e.g. gig workers & independent contractors). Secondary source, archived: https://www.cbpp.org/research/economy/policy-basics-unemployment-insurance The CARES Act also established a low-interest, forgivable loan program for small businesses to help keep employees on payroll.

It is difficult to modify this "3" given the immense variations across the country, given that decisions as to who gets tested depend on state and county level decisions. However, this 3 may be inappropriate, given that in a vast majority of states, testing is only being carried out for patients showing symptoms. CDC guidelines establish the following: - Testing is recommended for all close contacts of confirmed or probable COVID-19 patients. - Those contacts who test positive (symptomatic or asymptomatic) should be managed as a confirmed COVID-19 case. - Asymptomatic contacts testing negative should self-quarantine for 14 days from their last exposure (i.e., close encounter with confirmed or probable COVID-19 case) - If testing is not available, symptomatic close contacts should self-isolate and be managed as a probable COVID-19 case. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/contact-tracing/contact-tracing-plan/contact-tracing.html
