Department of Employment and Economic Development Commissioner Steve Grove shared details of what phase three will look like, beginning Wednesday, June 10:

  • Up to 25 people can now gather outdoors, with 10 still the limit indoors.
  • Restaurants and bars can have indoor seating up to 50% capacity with a maximum of 250 people indoors or outdoors. Masks are required for workers and strongly encouraged for customers. Reservations are required.
  • Hair and nail salons, barbershops can go up to 50% capacity. Patrons and workers must wear masks. Reservations are required.
  • Places of worship are going up to 50% capacity, 250 maximum.
  • Gyms and fitness centers are being allowed to open for the first time since their closure, at 25% capacity. Masks are encouraged as often as possible, and group exercise classes are allowed if social distancing can be maintained.
  • Movie theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, museums, indoor entertainment venues opening at 25% capacity not to exceed 250.

Wearing a mask in public, staying 6 feet from others, practicing good hygiene and staying home when sick is still critical, Grove said. Anyone who is able to work from home is still asked to telework.
