Every State’s Rules for Staying Open and Social Distancing

Widgets, face mask Memoji, car keys: Here's what's new on iOS 14

(CNN)Popular apps including Spotify, Pinterest and Tinder were crashing on iPhones on Friday in what appeared to be a widespread outage linked to a Facebook bug.

Reports of the crashes spiked on DownDetector, a service monitoring site, around 7:30 am Friday on the East Coast, and users and developers vented their frustrations on social media.
By 10:30 am, Facebook (FB) said on its developer forum that an error in its iOS software development kit was resolved, about eight hours after it started investigating the spike in crashes.

    Many app developers use this SDK to allow people to use their Facebook login information to sign into other apps — though users didn’t need to be using the Facebook login to be affected by the crashes.
    It made for a frustrating Friday morning for developers and users of these apps, especially because a similar outage linked to the Facebook SDK occurred in May, according to the tech news site The Verge.

    Every State’s Rules for Staying Open and Social Distancing

    The U.S. reported a record number of new coronavirus cases in the month of June, with over a million new cases recorded since the beginning of January. Spikes in new COVID-19 cases have been reported in most states across the country in recent weeks. Many states are taking action and are halting plans for further reopening. 

    To determine each state’s social distancing measures and rules for reopening, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed executive orders from state governors over the last few weeks. 

    No states are considering, at least as of yet, an option to return to a complete shutdown. But more states are mandating that people wear masks when they are anywhere in public, especially in enclosed spaces. 

    As the country reached another sad milestone in the age of COVID-19, surpassing 3 million cases on July 8, there are significant variations in how states are deciding to continue opening their economies and allow people to gather again. 

    The death toll from the coronavirus disease has climbed to nearly 134,000 as of July 9. The concentrations of active cases are not evenly spread across the country, and the hotspots of the virus are changing — these are the states where the coronavirus is growing the fastest right now.
