Stage 2 of reopening began May 16th – allowing for another wave of business owners to open –including dine-in restaurants, salons, and fitness centers.  Stage 3 began last week, on May 30th, as most remaining retailers – such as bars and movie theaters – were able to open their doors.  Although shopping, entertainment, and services may look different as retailers must still adhere to business protocols – the buzz of excitement is in the air.
