Fairfield, Tolland and Windham counties join Hartford, New Haven and New London counties, which are also in the substantial transmission category per the CDC classification system.
“Per guidance this week from the CDC, anyone over age two who lives, works or travels throughout these counties should wear a mask when in public indoor spaces,” said Deidre S. Gifford, MD, MPH, senior advisor to the Governor for Health and Human Services, and acting commissioner of DPH. “This alert applies to all residents in these areas whether they are vaccinated or not.”
