Reopening ConnecticutMay 1, 2020
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and daily information on cases and outcomes, we are finally seeing some steady progress towards re-opening.
Thanks to the social distancing measures we put in place and most everyone's cooperation and compliance, we have seen a daily decline in hospitalizations across the state.
As a result, Governor Lamont announced the state will begin a cautious, phased-in re-opening beginning on May 20th.
KEY Points that will contribute to the decision to begin opening the state:
- A 14-day decline in hospitalizations
- Increased testing
- Enough contact tracing
- Protection for those at highest risk,
- Adequate protective equipment and hospital capacity
- Social distancing protocols
Many of us are anxious to resume our daily activities and interacting with family and friends, however we must do so responsibly. The health and strength of our businesses and economy depends on all of us.
I will keep you updated as we make progress and more details are released by the governor's advisory group.
Stay safe and healthy!
