Iowa never fully shut down, so I was able to enjoy shooting sports throughout the event. I do believe this weekend we are pretty much fully open, except for bars and casinos. Casinos are open, but no gambling. Restaurants with bars can have patrons, but bar only, nope.

I live in Alabama and my range never closed. The big news this week is the beaches are opening for the holiday weekend.

The outdoor range that I belong to never shut down.

The indoor range nearby closed for a while then opened two weeks ago, every other bay only and mandatory mask wearing. I'll skip it.

My indoor range shutdown for two weeks, in early April, then reopened with restrictions for just purchases, along with distancing and number of people in store rules.
Later April kept the above rules, but opened up range, but every other stall is closed off to help keep distancing in effect. Two private lanes reopened. Masks strongly encouraged, though I do see people without. More guns showing up in the display cases and on the "long gun" walls, which is nice to see.
Classes with reduced attendance is slowly phasing back in, which is a good thing for me, as I am under apprenticeship with my instructor in his classes as I continue to collect my own various student/instructor ratings.

Best wishes, and stay safe.
