Phase 3 Opens TODAY, October 8
Phase 3 represents the latest stage of the Governor's reopening plan for Connecticut. There are very specific rules that will take place during this phase.
Restaurants, personal services, hair salons, barber shops, and libraries: Increase from 50 percent to 75 percent capacity indoors. NOTE: This is subject to COVID-19 safety requirements
- Outdoor event venues (e.g. amphitheaters, race tracks, etc.): Increase from 25 percent to 50 percent capacity. NOTE: This is dependent on the use of masks and social distancing requirements
- Indoor performing arts venues: These locales will be able to open at 50 percent capacity with masks and social distancing requirements in place
Bars and nightclubs: These businesses will continue to remain closed.
In addition to frequent reminders about what residents and visitors can do to keep themselves and others safe, our lodging properties, restaurants and attractions are doing their part as well. The Connecticut Office of Tourism hit the road throughout the state to video just some of the hotels, restaurants and attractions walking the walk when it comes to keeping their guests and employees safe.
Anyone traveling into Connecticut, New York, or New Jersey from a state that has a new daily positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average are directed to:
- Self-quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the identified state
- Provide proof of negative COVID-19 test results within three days of arrival to avoid quarantining
- Get tested in Connecticut and quarantine until receipt of negative test results
Travelers will now be required to complete a form upon entry into Connecticut stating their name, date of birth, state of origin, estimated length of stay and location while in Connecticut, as well as contact information. The form is required to be submitted to DPH and can be completed online by visiting ct.gov/travelform.
