• On March 2, the Governor announced that all businesses will be able to open at 100% capacity for the first time on March 10. Additionally, the state will be removing the statewide mask mandate and allow businesses to create their own policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If at any point a hospital region reaches a considerable amount of cases for a week straight, then those counties will be permitted to enact new restrictions.
  • When seven of the hospital regions reached the hospitalization threshold, the Governor required restaurants to reduce capacity from 75% to 50% in those areas, and any bars that were previously allowed to be open to close. A statewide mask mandate remains in effect.
  • In hopes to properly monitor the spread of COVID-19, the state has divided into hospital regions to monitor the hospitalization threshold in each area and impose restrictions with respect to each area.
  • In mid-October, the state was allowed to open bars for in-person service at 50% capacity.
  • The businesses and bars that remain open must continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines and sanitation requirements.
