To address staffing needs and shortages in nursing homes statewide, the Connecticut Department of Public Health today announced the launch of the ConnectToCare online portal to match long-term care facilities in the state with hundreds of qualified potential staff.
Since yesterday's launch, more than 300,000 users in Connecticut have activated COVID Alert CT on their mobile devices. Available on Apple and Android devices, the smartphone feature uses Bluetooth to anonymously notify users if they have come into close proximity of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes.
The Access Health CT Open Enrollment period started November 1, and already thousands of Connecticut residents have explored their health insurance options. This year, Access Health CT is offering a variety of in-person and virtual opportunities for residents to shop, compare, and enroll in coverage.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health today released its weekly COVID-19 Alert Map, which indicates that 68 cities and towns in Connecticut are now in the red zone alert level, the highest of the state’s four alert levels.
