Phase 1 of Connecticut's Reopen Plan began on May 20, 2020. Here are the sector rules that apply to businesses in this phase.
Keep Connecticut Safe: Did you visit a business that might be violating a COVID-19 safety requirement? Let us know here.
Gatherings: All social and recreational gatherings are limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. Religious, spiritual, and worship gatherings are limited to 25% of capacity or up to 100 people indoors, and a maximum of 150 people outdoors.
Face Coverings: When in public and a six-foot distance is unavoidable, face coverings are required to be worn. This does not apply to anyone for whom doing so would be contrary to their health because of a medical condition. Guidance on face coverings has been issued to the state's businesses. To make a face covering at home, watch this video from the CDC.
