“Stay Safe, Stay Home.”

Governor Lamont is telling Connecticut residents to “Stay Safe, Stay Home.” All non-essential workers statewide are being directed to work from home, effective Monday, March 23 at 8:00 p.m. For the latest information, resources, executive orders, and guidance related to coronavirus (COVID-19)

These types of businesses will remain open: food supply chain, grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, health care, doctors offices, financial services, childcare services, auto repair and hardware services.

Liquor stores would remain open and restaurants and bars are allowed to offer takeout and delivery services. No one is allowed to dine-in at a local establishment. Officials said individuals wouldn’t be fined for violating the order but non-essential businesses that choose to remain open could be fined.
