Restaurants to reopen04

Sammy Bajraktarevic, (right) owner of Luce Restaurant in Middletown, sets up tables with the help of members of his staff under a 60X30-foot tent he had set up in the restaurant parking lot as they prepare to reopen for only outdoor dining on Wednesday. Restaurants in Connecticut have been closed except for take out since March 16 when Gov. Ned Lamont ordered the closures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Although they are losing twelve parking spaces, the tent has room for fifteen tables to accommodate diners while honoring social distancing guidelines. ÒItÕs like coming back to life again,Ó said Bajraktarevic. Cloe Poisson /
