Gov. Ned Lamont says he would like to keep Connecticut residents wearing masks while indoors until at least the end of the school year.
Lamont says 60% of those 16 and older in Connecticut have at least one dose of the vaccine.
Lamont says although vaccine supply is now greater than demand, the goal is to vaccinate more residents to get close to herd immunity.
As of May 19, Lamont says masks won't be required outdoors.
His executive orders put in place during the pandemic are set to expire May 20, which means it's up to the legislature to decide if masks will continue to be required indoors.
