As Governor Lamont announced earlier this week, the entire state will move to Phase 2.1 on Friday, November 6 at 12:01 a.m. This is in response to an increasing rate of COVID-19 across Connecticut and surrounding states.
I encourage all businesses to revisit the updated Business Sector Rules and Certification page to learn more about Phase 2.1 – a slightly modified version of Phase 2. The page includes a comparison of Phases 2, 2.1 and 3 rules, as well as updated guidance on the capacity limits for many types of social gatherings.
As always, employers are also reminded to maximize telework whenever possible.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to keeping your employees and customers safe. Please know that these decisions are made with the goal of keeping our economy open to the maximum extent possible, while protecting the health of all our residents and families.
