To the Editor:

On the same day I read the Berlin Fair scheduled for Sept. 18, 2020 was cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, New Britain’s mayor said the city couldn’t make plans for summer events such as the Fourth of July fireworks as she was waiting for Gov. Lamont to give more details as to how the state’s Phase 2 June 20 reopening will happen.

Unless the July 4th fireworks are done with no one in attendance, or the governor’s Phase 2 reopening permits gatherings up to 25,000 people (or more), what’s the wait?
