Orientación más reciente de CT Covid-19

COVID-19 vaccine eligibility:

All individuals who are 12 years of age or older and live, work, or attend school in Connecticut are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

For more information on vaccinations and to learn how to get the vaccine, visit ct.gov/covidvaccine.

Mask and face covering requirements:

As of May 19, 2021, Connecticut’s protocols regarding masks and face coverings were updated to align with the recently modified CDC recommendations. The protocols that are currently in effect statewide are as follows:


  • Masks not required


  • Vaccinated not required to wear masks
  • Unvaccinated must wear masks
  • Masks are required to be worn by everyone in certain settings such as healthcare facilities, facilities housing vulnerable populations, public and private transit, correctional facilities, schools, and childcare
  • Businesses and state and local government offices have the option to require masks to be worn by everyone in their establishments

Business sector rules in effect:

As of May 19, 2021, all of the business sector rules that were previously enacted to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted, except for the updated mask requirements as noted in the section above. These changes are contingent upon a low incidence of COVID-19 and the Connecticut population continuing to get vaccinated.

Travel Advisory: Mandates and requirements regarding travel are no longer in effect in Connecticut as of March 19, 2021. However, residents and visitors to Connecticut are strongly urged to follow travel-related guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH). Click here for detailed guidance regarding travel.

Elegibilidad para la vacuna COVID-19:

Todas las personas que tienen 12 años de edad o más y viven, trabajan o asisten a la escuela en Connecticut son elegibles para recibir la vacuna COVID-19.

Requisitos para cubrirse la cara y la mascarilla:

A partir del 19 de mayo de 2021, los protocolos de Connecticut sobre máscaras y cubiertas faciales se actualizaron  para alinearse con las recomendaciones de los CDC recientemente modificadas. Los protocolos que están vigentes actualmente en todo el estado son los siguientes:

Al aire libre

  • No se requieren máscaras


  • Vacunado no requiere usar mascarillas.
  • Los no vacunados deben usar máscaras
  • Se requiere que todas las personas usen máscaras en ciertos entornos, como instalaciones de atención médica, instalaciones que albergan a poblaciones vulnerables, transporte público y privado, instalaciones correccionales, escuelas y cuidado de niños.
  • Las empresas y las oficinas de los gobiernos estatales y locales tienen la opción de exigir que todas las personas en sus establecimientos usen máscaras.

Reglas del sector empresarial en vigor:

Al 19 de mayo de 2021, todos de las reglas del sector empresarial que se promulgaron anteriormente para prevenir la propagación de COVID-19 se han eliminado, a excepción de los requisitos de máscara actualizados como se indica en la sección anterior. Estos cambios dependen de una baja incidencia de COVID-19 y de que la población de Connecticut continúe vacunándose.

Aviso de viaje: los  mandatos y requisitos relacionados con los viajes ya no están vigentes en Connecticut a partir del 19 de marzo de 2021. Sin embargo, se recomienda encarecidamente a los residentes y visitantes de Connecticut que sigan la guía relacionada con los viajes de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) y el Departamento de Salud Pública de Connecticut (CT DPH). Haga clic aquí para obtener una guía detallada sobre viajes .
