All persons entering Connecticut Capitol buildings required to wear mask

All persons entering Connecticut Capitol buildings will be required to wear a mask due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
The updated mask protocol was sent in a letter from Jim Tamburro, the executive director of the Joint Committee on Legislative Management.
“All persons entering the buildings must wear masks or other appropriate face coverings when in common areas, this includes fully vaccinated individuals,” the letter reads.
It goes on to say that the health of legislators and staff is the No. 1 priority.
Over the weekend, Connecticut’s COVID positivity rate topped 3%. An additional 32 patients are in the hospital, bringing the total number to 148. That’s the biggest weekend jump since March.
