States across the country are mulling plans at rolling back stay-at-home orders as businesses beg for relief. But is it too soon to let up?

"Twinsisterdocs" Dr. Elana McDonald, a pediatrician, and Dr. Delana Wardlaw, a family physician, stepped up to volunteer.

He and his friends perform on tape to entertain seniors in COVID-19 quarantines.
