Federal health officials may soon relax "social distancing" guidelines for those who have been exposed to a coronavirus infection, a possible sign that the federal government is hoping to get more Americans back to work in the coming weeks.

Health officials are considering a recommendation that anyone who has been exposed to coronavirus but have no symptoms can return to work so long as they carefully monitor their potential symptoms, regularly take their temperature, and wear a face mask.

Nine out of 10 Americans are currently under some form of government-mandated house arrest, with governors and mayors in most states and many cities ordering residents to stay at home. These orders have resulted in an essentially stopped economy and skyrocketing unemployment numbers.
