Governor Ned Lamont says the state is doing everything it can to combat coronavirus and offered suggestions for residents during a news conference on Monday.
"Nobody could be totally prepared for a virus like COVID-19, a virus that's changing every day. And the infections are accelerating every day, but we're working together on a collaborative basis to do everything we can," said Lamont.
In new guidance, Lamont said college students should not go home for spring break if they don't need to. If they do choose to go home, they may need to self-quarantine when they return, he said.
Later Monday state lawmakers announced that the Capitol complex will be closed immediately to all non-legislative events, meetings and tours. Tuesday's legislative activity will move forward as scheduled, but Wednesday will be a shortened day, and the building will be closed Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for a thorough cleaning.
Lawmakers said they have plans to reassess the situation via conference meetings and conference calls daily.
Also on Monday, Lamont announced that the State of Connecticut was recently given an additional test kit. The test allows 600 coronavirus tests to be conducted.
"We do have another test kit. That represents the ability to do another 600 tests. So far we've done less than 50. All that means to says is we are prepared. We've had our first Connecticut case of COVID-19 and it won't be the last,” Lamont added.
