According to the latest Executive Order by Governor Lamont is requiring people in public to wear face masks if they cannot maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more. That means when you go out to the store to get groceries or go to pick up your medicine at the pharmacy, you need to wear a cloth facial covering. The text is here:

Cloth Face Coverings or Higher Level of Protection Required in Public Wherever Close Contact is Unavoidable. Effective at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, April 20, 2020, 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. 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 means of mass public transit, or while within any semi-enclosed transit stop or waiting area.”
