Fortunately we are moving to another phase.  Unfortunately it is phase 1.5 instead of 2.  I will try to interpret this over this evening and tomorrow morning.  I plan to be on the Tadpoll at 9 am tomorrow and the radio following that.  In addition, I will post information sometime tomorrow.

What I can gather up to this point is that the following will be allowed in 1.5 with some restrictions.

Hair salons, barber shops, nail salons, and other personal service businesses by appointment only.  Fitness centers and health clubs.  In-person commencement or graduation ceremonies with no more than 10 individuals in a room, gymnasium, or facility at one time.  10 persons is still the limit to gatherings.

More information to follow tomorrow.
