Reopening plans and mask mandates, by state

As U.S. COVID-19 cases drop and vaccinations continue to climb, with 46 percent of the population partially vaccinated as of May 10, many states have eased pandemic restrictions.

The New York Times compiled each state's reopening status and mask requirements. States that have lifted all restrictions on which businesses can operate are considered fully reopened, according to the Times. Reopened states may still require masks, social distancing rules and limits on gatherings. 

Here are where COVID-19 restrictions and mask mandates stand in the states and Washington, D.C., as of May 10:
