Releases 

 


We are asking residents to stay informed about COVID-19.  The CDC recommends the following prevention tips:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use the inside of your elbow. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, and certainly if your commute includes public transit.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.  Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.

NEW: Access Health CT has extended their open enrollment period due to COVID-19. Uninsured individuals can sign up until April 17.

  • The only way to sign up for this NEW Special Enrollment Period is by calling 855-365-2428.
  • Individuals who experience a Qualifying Life Event (e.g. loss of coverage due to job change or unemployment) or qualify for Medicaid/Children’s Health Program (CHIP), can ALWAYS enroll online, in-person or over the phone and all help is free.

Public Utility Shut off Moratorium 

CT Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) has ordered an emergency moratorium on electric, natural gas, and water utility shut-offs in response to the coronavirus pandemic. This moratorium will last for the duration of the Public Health and Civil Preparedness Emergency.
