Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Safety Information

Play your part to flatten the curve.


New Haven has entered phase one of the State’s REOPEN Connecticut plan, which allows restaurants and retailers to begin reopening in accordance with state and city guidelines. As you begin to make plans to support local businesses, please keep in mind, the safety and well-being of the public remain the top priority of New Haven officials.  Many New Haven restaurants are now open for takeout and some will open for limited outdoor dining starting May 20. Likewise, some retailers will begin to reopen on May 20 and beyond as each individual retailer takes the necessary steps to safely accommodate customers.
