• It can be difficult to understand why some businesses are allowed to open while others cannot. An activity or business’ place in the state’s new four-tier system depends on whether it can:

Accommodate mask wearing at all times (for example, eating and drinking requires removing masks)
Allow physical distance between individuals from different households
Limit the number of people per square foot
Limit time that an individual is at the business or activity
Limit time of exposure
Limit mixing of people from different households
Limit amount of physical interactions of visitors/patrons
Increase airflow (such as operating outdoors or opening windows and doors)
Limit activities that are known to increase virus spread (like singing, shouting and heavy breathing)
