Starting March 19, all capacity limits will be lifted on restaurants, retail, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation and gyms, offices and houses of worship, Governor Ned Lamont announced on Thursday.
Restaurants are still required to close by 11 pm and maintain an 8-person table limit, however. Indoor theaters are still required to operate at 50 percent capacity. Drink-only bars will remain shut. Private gatherings have generously been expanded to 25 indoors and 100 outdoors, while those at commercial venues were expanded to 100 inside and 200 outside.
