The U.S. is on the verge of registering 100,000 deaths from the novel coronavirus as the nation continues to reopen and respond to the pandemic on this mournful Memorial Day. 

Throughout the weekend, Americans have been out and about after being cloistered at home for more than two months. But with the reemergence comes new fears that the virus could spread further, creating more headaches for state and government officials as they subsequently look to bring back the American economy. 

On the Sunday talk shows, conversation centered around the precautions Americans should take throughout the weekend, including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing despite crowded beaches, boardwalks, parks and other highly concentrated localities. 

“You can go out. You can be outside. You can play golf. You can play tennis with marked balls. You can go to the beaches if you stay six feet apart. But remember that that is your space, and that's a space that you need to protect and ensure that you're social distanced for others," Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, told ABC’s “This Week.”
