HARTFORD, March 20, 2020 – Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont is expected to sign an executive order on Friday that would mandate that most workers remain home to help fight the spread of the contagious COVID-19 coronavirus.

People that work at grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations and other essential businesses like utilities and manufacturers will be allowed to work. The order will also allow package stores, auto repair facilities, hardware stores and restaurants that provide takeout orders to remain open.

It is reportedly similar to an order issued earlier in the day by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Lamont said there could be fines for non-essential retailers who remain open. Read more from our friends at CT News Junkie.com.
