As more of Connecticut reopens for the first time since March, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses and organizations to close their doors, restrictions are also beginning to lift on the number of people who can gather in a group.  

Changes Starting Today

Stage 2 of reopening the state started today and up to 25 people can now gather at private gatherings indoors and 100 can gather for outdoor events.

In March, early in the pandemic, gatherings were limited to five people. Then the size of gatherings was increased to 10 people indoors and 25 outside.
