Gov. Ned Lamont on Friday issued an executive order, called Stay Safe, Stay Home, requiring non-essential workers to stay home to promote social distancing and slow the spread of the coronavirus. This order will become effective at 8 p.m. on Monday, March 23 through Wednesday, April 22, unless modified, extended or terminated by the governor.
The Hearst Connecticut Media Group is exempt from this requirement because we are considered an essential operation as we provide critical information to our readers and our community. Therefore, we will continue our normal print and digital publishing of newspapers during this time.
