HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Connecticut officials announced Monday night the state now has 415 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 10 coronavirus deaths.

The latest spike comes as Gov. Ned Lamont’s “Stay Safe, Stay Home” executive order, directing non-essential workers to work from home, takes effect.

The governor’s order excludes workers in essential services, like health care, food service and law enforcement.

Officials say more than 4,500 tests have been conducted among state and private laboratories.
