On May 6th, the governor’s office highlighted three key dates to wind down the restrictions:
May 7 (Friday) - The state removes limits for outdoor dining and events like fairs, festivals and parades. It ends the mask order outdoors, except at venues with more than 500 people. Pandemic-related closing times for bars, restaurants and other gathering spaces are lifted.
May 28 - Any remaining outdoor limits and indoor activity restrictions will end.
July 1 - The state’s mask wearing requirement will end. It could end sooner if 70 percent of the state’s 16-and-older population have received at least one vaccine dose. Currently it’s about 60 percent.
