Governor Ned Lamont announced that the state will move into Phase 3 of its reopening on Oct. 8, allowing for an increased indoor capacity of some businesses. Restaurants, personal services such as hair salons and barbershops, and libraries will be able to increase from 50 percent to 75 percent capacity indoors, according to Lamont. Outdoor event venues, including amphitheaters and race tracks, will be allowed to increase from 25 percent to 50 percent capacity, Lamont said.
Once phase 3 is in place, indoor commercial venues can hold up to 100 people indoors or 50% capacity. Outdoor venues will be capped at 150 people and indoor private gatherings will remain capped at 25 people.
