Governor Lamont Applauds House Passage of Legislation Relaxing State Laws on Outdoor Dining at Connecticut Restaurants
Legislation Codifies the Governor’s Executive Orders That Allow Restaurants to Expand Their Ability to Serve Customers Outdoors
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont is applauding the Connecticut House of Representatives for unanimously voting today to approve legislation that codifies into state statutes the executive orders he issued during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that relax restrictions on outdoor dining at restaurants and enabling these businesses to provide expanded service to their customers outside. The legislation permits restaurants to operate under these relaxed rules through March 31, 2022, and allows municipalities to expedite permanent changes to their zoning rules if they wish to expand the availability of outdoor dining and retail activity.
