Connecticut ramps up for reopening of businesses
4 May 2020
Members of the panel plotting Connecticut’s comeback from the coronavirus pandemic rejected the notion of reopening some parts of the state before others, according to Gov. Ned Lamont.
“The advisory board thought about ‘How should we do this?’” Lamont said Friday, a day after revealing a plan to start easing restrictions on restaurants and some other businesses on May 20. “‘Should we do this in phases, should we do this by industry, should we do this by region?’ And I think they came to the correct conclusion that we’re a small state and it’s easy to traverse."
