Masks are now required in public
Gov. Ned Lamont has ordered that as of 8 a.m. on Monday, April 20, everyone in Connecticut is required to wear a cloth mask anywhere in public if they can’t maintain a 6-foot social distance. This is being interpreted as referring to grocery stores and other retail outlets. Masks are also required in any kind of for-hire mode of transportation.
