The new tentative dates for reopening are:

May 22 – Restaurants, with limited 33% capacity and outdoor seating

June 1 – Movie theaters, fitness centers

June 11 – Campgrounds, public and private

June 15 – Child care, with reduced capacity; and potentially low-touch and outdoor youth sports

The Governor added that Phase 3 is coming July 1 with bars, with limitations, and gatherings up to 50 people then being allowed.
