Face Coverings: When in public and a six-foot distance is unavoidable, face coverings are required to be worn in the state of CT. This does not apply to anyone for whom doing so would be contrary to their health because of a medical condition. Guidance on face coverings has been issued to the state’s businesses. To make a face covering at home, watch this video from the CDC.
