CT makes it easier for restaurants, retail stores to sell outdoors
14 May 2020
Gov. Ned Lamont has removed red tape for restaurateurs and retailers looking to pivot to expanded outdoor sales as the state’s economy gradually reopens May 20 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The governor signed an executive order Tuesday -- the 40th aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 -- that empowers towns and cities to expedite zoning changes or ordinances for small businesses seeking to bring their operations outdoors.
