Phase 2 allows for recreation and gatherings of 5 or fewer people outside of your household. Please follow Phase 2 restrictions and continue to wear a face-covering when you cannot maintain physical distance. Our goal is to reach Phase 3, which allows for recreation and gatherings with a larger amount of people and additional businesses to reopen and increase capacity.
