CONNECTICUT — The state of Connecticut has adopted several changes to
its mask mandate as the new order went into effect Friday and will last
for six months.
The new executive order states: "Effective immediately, any person in a
public place in Connecticut, whether indoors or outdoors, who 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
"In addition, individuals shall use a mask or cloth face covering when
using the services of any taxi, car, livery, ride-sharing or similar
service, or any means of mass public transit, or while within any
semi-enclosed transit stop or waiting area.
"Nothing in this order shall require the use of a mask or cloth face
covering by anyone for whom doing so would be contrary to his or her
health or safety because of a medical condition, a child in a child care
setting, or anyone under the age of 2 years.
"Any person who declines to wear a mask or face covering because of a
medical condition shall be exempt from this order and any requirement to
wear masks in Sector Rules or other rules issued by the Commissioner of
the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), but only if
such person provides written documentation that the person is qualified
for the exemption from a licensed medical provider, the Department of
Developmental Services or other state agency that provides or supports
services for people with emotional, intellectual or physical
disabilities, or a person authorized by any such agency.
"Such documentation need not name or describe the condition that
qualifies the person for the exemption .... This order shall take effect
immediately and remain in effect for six months."
Earlier this week Gov. Ned Lamont said the mask exemption has been
abused by people who don't really have a medical condition that would
make mask use unhealthy.
