Who’s an essential worker, what’s an essential business?
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
As of 8 p.m. Monday all Connecticut workers not deemed "essential" were asked to stay home until at least April 22, according to an executive order signed by Gov. Ned Lamont.
According to the state, dozens of jobs ranging from dog walkers to grocery store clerks are considered essential while small businesses will be allowed to remain open if they're run by only one employee.
According to Executive Order 7H, all non-essential businesses and nonprofits were expected to have reduced their in-person workforces 100 percent by Monday night.
