Officials in Hartford are still weighing their options, although they say they agree contact tracing is key to restoring economic activity safely.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's involves hiring more than 3,000 students and more than $10 million in funding from Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
