COVID-19 WalletHub Study: Georgia Now Ranks 28th Among States With Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CW69 News at 10) -- Georgia may have been one of the first states to begin re-opening during the COVID-19 pandemic, but a WalletHub study released today shows it has fewer coronavirus restrictions than about half of the states.

The study shows Georgia now ranks 28th out of 51, including the District of Columbia. It ranked 11th in a May 5th WalletHub study before moving down 17 spots.

WalletHub says it used 11 key metrics to compare the states, which include whether a state is still sheltering in place and if restaurants and child care programs have reopened there.

According to WalletHub, South Dakota ranks at the top of the list of states having the fewest restrictions, followed by Wisconsin, Idaho, Missouri and Utah.

Based on the report, Illinois ranks at number 51, which means it has the most restrictions.
