Re-Opening ConnecticutJune 15, 2020 7:11 pm
Health experts predict the COVID-19 virus will afflict the U.S. for months to come. Emerging data show that in the U.S. the COVID-19 pandemic is disproportionately affecting black and Latino people with some data indicating that American Indians, Alaska natives and other ethnic minority groups are also exposed to higher risks of serious illness from the virus.
A recent analysis from Yale University researchers found that black people are 3.5 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than white people & Latinos are almost twice as likely to die.
Given Connecticut’s recent improvement in the # of hospitalizations and COVID cases the Governor has moved the state to Phase 2 of the re-opening plans which include the followiung:
- Restaurants (inside dining)
- Movie Theaters
- Formal gatherings
- Amusement parks
- Pools and social clubs
- Museums & Aquariums
- Bowling alleys
- Summer camps
With these new attractions now open it will be incumbent on all residents to remain socially distant and wear masks where social distance is not able to be maintained.
