A Look at The States that Updated COVID-19 Restrictions

State governors have been busy in the last month with approximately 20 states adjusting policies on COVID-19 regulations. In early January, COVID-19 cases were hitting some of the highest peaks since the start of the pandemic, but the nature of the changes were a mixed bag. Some states like California, Minnesota, and Wyoming, began to reopen slightly after gaining control of the current wave of the virus, while states like New Jersey and Wisconsin have been faced with yet another round of shutdowns.

Visit the Park Street State Reopening Tracker to see the most up-to-date list of state restrictions for the on-premise. We will continue to update the tracker monthly. Please send any reopening or shutdown news to psu@parkstreet.com.
