Fines Increased for COVID Violations In Connecticut

 

Gov. Ned Lamont announced last week that he has signed an executive order, which increases the amount that businesses can be fined for violations of the state’s COVID-19 sector rules and capacity limits, to $10,000 per violation. This increase went into effect on Nov. 26, 2020. According to Lamont’s office, “The sector rules and capacity limits we’ve implemented are intended to mitigate the spread of this disease to the greatest extent possible … We have seen a small number of businesses in flagrant violation of these public health rules, and that’s all you need to cause a super-spreading event that leads to a large number of cases and hospitalizations.”
