Gov. Ned Lamont is urging state residents not to travel for the holidays to avoid another COVID-19 spike.
He says that things have calmed down a bit since the post-Thanksgiving surge, but that if you do travel - get tested and quarantine.
Lamont also says that the state has vaccinated more than 16,000 people, with most being in hospitals.
They're still waiting on numbers from nursing homes.
Lamont says Pfizer is looking to double its supply, but it's not clear when the doses would arrive in Connecticut.
He says he's glad that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy are enforcing quarantine policies at airports, especially for those coming from the U.K. where a new strand of COVID-19 is spreading.
