Several of the state’s top elected officials are self-quarantining after the governor’s spokesman tested positive for COVID-19. This comes as governors from around the Northeast are set to meet virtually as soon as Sunday to discuss how to deal with increased spread of the virus around the region.
Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, in addition to Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz, said Saturday they would self-isolate following a public appearance on Friday that included Gov. Ned Lamont. The governor made a similar announcement Friday evening after it was learned that his spokesman, Max Reiss, tested positive for the virus.
