Connecticut state parks close gates after reaching capacity
WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) - Several Connecticut state parks closed their gates before noon Sunday after quickly reaching their visitor limits.
The state has reduced by half the number of people allowed in the parks during the coronavirus pandemic to allow for social distancing. By Sunday morning, NBC Connecticut says at least eight state parks had stopped letting people in.
The state’s coronavirus transmission rate is among the lowest in the country and the state has reported few virus deaths in recent days.
