Connecticut bowling alleys will have to scale back their hours of operation during Phase 2.1.
The phase went into effect today as statewide COVID-19 cases continue to rise.
Under the new plan, bowling alleys across the state must close at 10 p.m. as the state rolls back to a modified version of Phase 2 of reopening.
Office Manager Laurie Vaitkus, of Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield, says a good portion of their business comes from the night crowd though, especially now with the cold weather season.
She says the new rollback is now coupled with the struggle of only being able to operate at half capacity the past few months.
"Now with this cutback, it's just another knockdown punch to us," she says.
She says the bowling alley enforces temperature checks at the door, has curtains in between lanes, requires masks, a separate room to sanitize the balls, and more.
