Phase 2 Reopening to Begin a Few Days Early

The governor plans to start the next phase of reopening the state a few days early after closing non-essential businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead of starting Phase 2 on June 20, Gov. Ned Lamont said Phase 2 will start on June 17 as long as COVID hospitalizations and infection rates remain low.

Among the businesses that the governor has said will be able to open in Phase 2 are gyms, nail salons and movie theaters.
