Trump to visit Arizona mask plant amid push to lift coronavirus restrictions
President Donald Trump will travel to Phoenix on Tuesday, leaving the confines of Washington for the first time in more than a month as the administration begins pushing states to ease coronavirus restrictions that have crippled the U.S. economy. The president will visit a Honeywell aerospace facility that is expanding its production of critical N-95 respirator masks to meet the demand for essential workers, according to the White House. The trip to Arizona, both considered battleground states in November’s election, comes as Trump has signaled his eagerness for states to begin allowing residents to return to work and reopening schools and businesses. 
President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discussed the re-opening of Florida’s businesses during a White House meeting.
Washington state partially relaxes social distancing measures
Fishing, hunting and golfing can resume on Tuesday in Washington, at which time people can also return to state parks and other state lands for day trips amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, Gov. Jay Inslee said that if the state sees an uptick in infections of the coronavirus or if people don’t continue to take safety measures while recreating, the activities could once again be restricted. Other states have already begun to relax social distancing restrictions, plans that often vary by region, state, county and even city. Heres how all 50 states are making moves to roll back social distancing regulations. 
Some states are moving slowly towards reopening their economies while others are moving more quickly to reopen.
Saluto Cinco de Mayo
No, its not Mexico’s Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. For Americans, its often a time to enjoy Mexican food and a few margaritas. But as many restaurants remain closed for dine-in amid the coronavirus pandemic, Americans might have to celebrate differently this year. Luckily, many are offering ways to perk up your at home fiesta. Taco Bell’s launching At Home Taco Bars, a $25 spread that feeds up to six and comes with all the ingredients you need to build a taco feast of your own at home.
