Previous Phase 1 Reopen Sectors
Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7PP repeals several previously enacted executive orders to allow for the safe reopening of certain sectors of the economy on May 20, including for the reopening of outdoor dining, offices, retail and malls, outdoor museums and zoos, university research and outdoor recreation businesses. Hair Salons & Barbershops were allowed to open June 1. You can find more on our site about Phase I and local support offered regarding signs and temporary zoning changes here.
Please note, as the new Executive Orders come out increasing social gathering size both indoors and outdoors, please keep in mind that contract tracing remains a key way our local health officials are able to help curb the spread of this virus. Consider watching this video from LLHD to learn more, or simply remember limiting your interactions with those outside those in your ‘inner circle’ remains critical, as does wearing a protective mask and practicing social distancing. Remember, it is not for you, but for the more vulnerable around you.
