CT Set to Loosen Restrictions on March 19th

March 5, 2021

Governor Lamont has announced a phased rollback of some COVID-19 restrictions. It’s important to remember that while these restrictions are being rolled back as the state begins to reopen, the state is still requiring all residents to wear face coverings or masks in public to limit the transmission of COVID-19.

On March 19th, just two weeks from now, the state will rollback capacity restrictions for places like restaurants, retail stores, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation (excluding theaters), gyms/fitness centers, museums, aquariums, zoos, offices, and houses of worship. Although capacity in these venues may return to 100%, face coverings, social distancing, and other cleaning and disinfecting protocols will continue to be required.
Restrictions on social and recreational gatherings will also be modified as follows:

  • Social and recreational gatherings at private residence – 25 indoors/100 outdoors
  • Social and recreational gatherings at commercial venues – 100 indoors/200 outdoors

As a reminder, eligible customers who enroll between now and March 15 will have their plan go into effect on April 1, 2021, in which the first premium or monthly payment will also be due.
Please note that consumers will not be required to verify their eligibility for this SEP. Those currently enrolled in coverage through AHCT will not be eligible to use this SEP to change plans. Financial help will continue to be available to consumers who qualify.
