The state's test positive rate was at 2.02% on Friday after 786 tests out of 38,830 since yesterday came back positive.

Gov. Ned Lamont will lift all outdoor restrictions tomorrow, including for bars that have been closed since the early days of the pandemic.

All restrictions for Connecticut businesses will end on May 19.
