The seals at the aquarium can now slip and slide for crowds as the city will move to “Step One of Phase Three” of the state’s reopening plan on Feb. 1.

Come Monday, the following can open with 25% capacity. It’s a start as the city sees better coronavirus metrics:

  • Indoor fitness centers and health clubs, including gyms using alternative spaces
  • Movie theaters
  • Museums
  • Aquariums
  • Indoor recreational and athletic facilities
  • Indoor recreational venues with potential for low-contact (batting cages, driving ranges, bowling alleys, rock-climbing)

  • Indoor historical spaces and sites
  • Indoor event spaces such as meeting rooms, ballrooms, private party rooms and social clubs (limited to 10 people)
