“It’s going to be a balancing act,” says Connecticut Retail Merchants Association President Tim Phelan. “We’re ready to reopen, and we’re hoping the general public is ready for us to reopen.”
Around the state, some favor opening businesses now, while others favor slowly rolling out certain sectors. Even Gov. Ned Lamont, who has said an official strategic announcement will be made on May 20, is now indicating some reopenings could occur sooner.
The formulation of Connecticut’s strategy for restarting the economy is quickly gaining momentum, according to the co-chairs of the Reopen Connecticut Advisory Board, as the state’s COVID-19-related deaths grew since yesterday by 103 to total 971.
According to the Department of Public Health, Fairfield County's COVID-positive cases jumped by nearly 500 since yesterday, to a total of 6,004, with another 22 hospitalizations for a total of 710. The county recorded another 14 deaths to bring that total to 262.
