Connecticut begins its first phase of reopening Wednesday. Restaurants can now offer outdoor seating, and offices and non-essential retail stores can reopen.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with State Sen. Saud Anwar (@SaudAnwarCT), who has expressed concern that the state is reopening too quickly, and David Agostino, who owns the Bedford Street Diner in Stamford and wants to be able to offer indoor dining.

This segment aired on May 20, 2020.
