Businesses are also asked to encourage guests/customers to wear face coverings, but there are not required by governor.

Grocery stores sill can’t offer self-serve food options, but restaurants can now allow people to eat inside as long as they maintai social distancing.

Barber shops and hair and nail salons still have to follow strict rules for cleaning and social distancing.

The good news is that the malls are allowed to reopen. Retail businesses must limit how many people they allow inside though.

If you’d like to visit a dispensary, you can go inside again and if you need a ride, transportation is available from taxis or rideshare drivers. There are restrictions.
