Gov. Ned Lamont announced Monday that he will end the statewide mask mandate in schools and childcare centers on February 28.
The decision after that will be up to individual school districts, Gov. Lamont said.
Gov. Lamont cited falling COVID-19 infection rates in the state and available vaccines to help protect people from serious illness.
â€œConnecticut is seeing a dramatic decline in cases caused by the Omicron variant, and children over the age of 5 have had the ability to get vaccinated for more than three months now,â€ Gov. Lamont said. â€œWith this in mind, I think we are in a good position to phase out the requirement that masks be worn in all schools statewide and shift the determination on whether to require this to the local level.â€
This comes after New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy did the same.
