The governor’s office released a 41-page document outlining Phase Two guidelines.
These are some of the changes we’ll see during Phase Two:
- Gatherings will be limited to 50 people, rather than 10
- Entertainment venues are able to open
- Restaurants can have indoor seating again, limited to 50% capacity
- Gyms and fitness centers can have indoor classes and workouts, limited to 30% capacity
- Certain recreation and entertainment venues without shared equipment may open with restrictions
- These venues include museums, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, and outdoor concert, sporting, and performing arts venues.
- Swimming pools may also expand operations to both indoor and outdoor exercise, diving, and swim instruction.
- Recreational sports can again happen, with physical distance requirements in place
Certain aspects of Phase One will continue in Phase Two:
- Face coverings will be required in indoor spaces
- Social distancing and telework will remain recommended practice
- Guidelines for religious services, non-essential retail, and personal grooming services will largely remain the same
The governor plans to talk more about what Phase Two on Thursday.
