Connecticut will lift all capacity limits on certain businesses starting on March 19, Gov. Ned Lamont announced on Thursday.

Restaurants, retail businesses, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation facilities, gyms, fitness centers, museums, aquariums, zoos, offices, and houses of worship will all have their capacity limits lifted. Theaters will maintain a 50% capacity limit.

Social distancing protocols and face masks will still be mandated. Restaurants will be limited to eight people per table and must close at 11 pm. Bars that only serve beverages will still be closed completely.

"I think we're finding what works is wearing the mask, social distancing, and vaccinations," Lamont said.
