Gov. Ned Lamont said Tuesday his administration is considering further easing of COVID restrictions and expanding the capacity of private, social, and recreational events at commercial venues. Such a change could take place on March 19, assuming the state’s infection numbers are good.
Indoor capacity at such venues would be at 50%, capped at 100 people, while capacity would be limited outdoors to up to 200 people.
“Event planners tell us you need time to plan. So that’s why we’re giving you a month to plan this,” Lamont said. “And I know you want some guarantees (so) we can have a big wedding in July. I can’t give you any guarantees, but right now the trends are good.”
