Andy Harris to Newsmax TV: Start Reopening Businesses in Less Affected Areas

By    |   Tuesday, 28 April 2020 12:26 PM

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that businesses in many parts of his state can start reopening, and criticized his fellow legislators for staying at home during the outbreak.

“The problem is that the governor’s treating the state as one homogenous state, but it’s not, it actually has rural areas where the prevalence of the disease is quite low, where the health care systems are not stressed, which could reopen shortly,” Harris said on “The National Report” Tuesday morning.

The congressman added later, “I'll bet there are areas in every one of our fifty states where the prevalence is low, where the risk is relatively low, and where we could reopen.”

He also elaborated on his tweet saying it’s “a shame that Congress is not in DC” because most legislators are practicing social distancing during the outbreak and not traveling unless absolutely necessary.

Harris said, “we were supposed to go in and out of the legislative session last week, we didn't go in, we're not going until next week. And we have many things, many problems that our small businesses have, that need to be solved. Those bills that we passed were not perfect, there were mistakes, we need to correct them, and we need to correct them quickly. Because these businesses are in danger of going out of… going into bankruptcy or going out of business on a daily basis. It's a real shame that, you know, we ask our frontline health care workers, we ask our first responders to be on the line to actually confront [COVID-19] patients every day, yet in Congress we're not willing to come back into Washington.”
