On May 19, all other restrictions will end. That includes social-distancing mandates, no gathering size limitations and movie theaters can open at 100%.
“I think you see May 1 there's going to be a little more outside fun, which I appreciate as long as we're careful, and on May 19 – we’re back to our new normal,” said the governor.
The governor says the state's Health Department will issue guidelines, but it will be up to the businesses to use their discretion on their own rules.
So far, 61% of all adults in Connecticut have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose.
