Reopening CT: A full resource guide for businesses reopening on May 20

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — As sectors of Connecticut’s economy gear up to reopen May 20, businesses and consumers alike need to brace for a new normal.

If you’re looking forward to eating outdoors at your favorite restaurant, get ready to see servers with masks and don’t plan to get together with groups over five — they are still limited.

As offices, outdoor dining, malls, zoos and other museums open, Governor Ned Lamont said those 65 and older should continue to play it safe and stay home.

Those wanting takeout can now legally take home mixed alcoholic drinks. Chef John Brennan was part of making the change happen. He started a petition, asking Lamont to change the rule.

The state has laid out guidelines for all businesses and they include a new standard of cleaning. The guide also provides a list of financial resources and employee training. Workers will have to get used to these new norms and details on how businesses should be set up to maintain social distancing.

The state has also included a list of where businesses can go to get PPE. The full resource guide can be accessed online.

All businesses reopening must adhere to certain guidelines. That information is linked below:

General business rules can also be found online.

The governor has also set a date of June 20 for when large gatherings can resume, like gyms and movie theaters. But again, that’s only if coronavirus cases continue to trend in the downward direction.
