Connecticut Gov. Issues Executive Order MANDATING Masks in Public

Gov. Ned Lamont of Connecticut issued an executive order mandating some type of face mask for everyone over the age of 2.  The order took effect April 20.

“Any person in a public place in Connecticut who is unable to or does not maintain a safe social distance of approximately six feet from every other person shall cover their mouth and nose with a mask or cloth face-covering,” the order reads.

The coverings are also required when using public transportation or when riding in a taxi, Uber or another ride-sharing service.

Additionally, essential employees — those who cannot work from home — are also required to wear a face mask or face covering.
