Connecticut's policies regarding masks and face coverings were updated to align with the recently modified CDC recommendations.

The statewide mask policy that is currently in effect is as follows:


  • Masks not required


  • Vaccinated not required to wear masks
  • Unvaccinated must wear masks
  • Masks are required to be worn by everyone in certain settings such as healthcare facilities, facilities housing vulnerable populations, public and private transit, correctional facilities, schools, and childcare
  • Businesses and state and local government offices have the option to require masks to be worn by everyone in their establishments

Municipal option to move beyond the minimum requirements of the statewide mask policy

  • Effective August 5, 2021, municipal leaders have the option of requiring masks to be worn by everyone in indoor public places regardless of vaccination status within their respective towns and cities

With the generous support of the 2020 Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation Youth Grant Program, Southwestern AHEC's Americorps members received funding to address hunger with educational modules, so youth, families, and communities can benefit from learning about Fruits, Vegetables, and Vitamins.
