The state will see an 80% increase in COVID-19 testing under an expanded partnership between Hartford HealthCare and Quest Diagnostics that was announced at Gov. Ned Lamont's afternoon briefing.
Gov. Ned Lamont announced an agreement with some 65 credit unions and banks in Connecticut to offer mortgage relief to the state’s residents and businesses who continue to face hardship caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Gov. Ned Lamont said that the state has received "another small delivery" of PPE from the federal government, including 146,000 surgical masks, as well as a promised 50 ventilators, which "we haven't seen yet."
While President Donald Trump's signing late this afternoon of the $2 trillion COVID-19 aid package should address the PPE shortage, Lamont said it would probably be three-plus weeks before that money arrives to the state.
