The Business Roundtable, a lobbying group representing chief executives of major companies, urged the White House to follow a strategy of reopening the economy from the coronavirus pandemic that is “guided by public health officials.”

The group’s president, Joshua Bolten, wrote in letter to the White House on Tuesday that the administration should make public safety a priority, emphasizing the need for federal guidelines and coordination between states.
