Gov. Lamont says masks won't be required indoors starting May 19
Connecticut will follow the CDC's updated guidance and end the indoor mask mandate for people who are fully vaccinated, Gov. Ned Lamont announced.
Masks do not have to be worn outdoors starting May 19, and those fully vaccinated will no longer need to wear them indoors.
The only exception to indoor mask wearing is crowded places like planes, trains, and hospitals.

For those who are not vaccinated though, Gov. Lamont says the mask-wearing will have to stay for a bit longer.
Gov. Lamont says masks must still be worn through the end of the school year at schools.
Officials say hopefully the majority of students will be vaccinated in the fall, and that masks won't be required inside the classroom.
