Mayor Bronin Statement on Connecticut Moving to Modified Phase 2
Published on November 02, 2020
HARTFORD, CONN (November 2, 2020) – Today Mayor Luke Bronin issued the statement below in response to Governor Lamont’s announcement that Connecticut will move as a whole to a modified version of Phase 2 as coronavirus transmission continues to increase in the state.
“Given the serious and sustained increase in coronavirus transmission, Governor Lamont’s decision to move back to a modified version of Phase 2 on a statewide basis is the right way to respond, rather than leaving a patchwork of local restrictions,” said Mayor Bronin. “In a state as small as Connecticut, what happens in any community affects every other community, and we need to work together to contain this spread because we’ve seen what happens when we get to a level of uncontrolled transmission. Governor Lamont and his team have stayed laser focused on allowing kids to be in school as much as possible and reopening the economy responsibly, and sometimes that means taking two steps forward and one step back. I appreciate his willingness to make the tough decisions, and also appreciate his team’s willingness to stay in constant communication and coordination with local officials.”
