Lamont: Some small businesses may be able to open soon

From NBC Connecticut.

Some small Connecticut businesses may be able to start reopening in the next couple of weeks under restrictions, Governor Ned Lamont said.

The governor’s comments came Tuesday during an interview on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.”

“My hunch is you’ll see some of the small main street businesses that have only been open for delivery maybe be able to let some people in there over the course of the next couple of weeks provided you’re wearing a mask and they can socially distance,” Lamont said.

The state has seen seven straight days of declining net hospitalizations, according to Lamont.
“That’s the key metric,” he said.

The federal government’s reopening plan calls for 14 days of straight decreases before moving towards reopening.
