June 1st Set for Restaurants to Re-Open

Governor Mills has unveiled her phased approach to re-opening the Maine economy. On point for the food community are stages 2 and 3:

  • Stage 2 begins on June 1st. It allows for the re-opening of restaurants and for gathering of up to 50 people.
  • Stage 3 begins on July 1st and anticipates the re-opening of bars.

I’m counting down the days—all 33 of them—until I can go to a Portland restaurant for a meal. In the meantime some takeout and a haircut (barbers and salons get the green light in stage 1) will fill the gap.

  1. Chris, that’s a good question. I suspect it’s probably driven by the class of liquor license each establishment has but I don’t know for certain.
