• On June 30, the state moved into Phase 3 of reopening, allowing bars to reopen for seated service only and indoor and outdoor recreational and entertainment establishments, such as movie theaters, to resume. Restaurants may continue to operate at 50 percent occupancy.
  • Outdoor dining is still encouraged as long as the restaurant does not serve more than its normal operating capacity and physical distancing can be maintained. Additionally, if an establishment has established extra outdoor dining capacity in Phase I or Phase II, that additional outdoor capacity may remain in Phase III if in accordance with the municipality’s approval processes.
  • Self-service seating (e.g. in a fast food restaurant) is prohibited.
  • Mingling or congregating of customers is prohibited. Establishments should take measures to prevent mingling and congregating of customers—especially at bars and in waiting areas, including outdoor bars and waiting areas.
  • Tables must be eight feet apart and six feet away from highly trafficked areas.
