Gov. Ned Lamont‘s administration plans to extend an executive order to allow outdoor dining.
The governor says he thinks at this point, “Outdoors is so much safer than indoors.”
Tuesday, Lamont posted video of a crowded establishment in Bridgeport from over the weekend.
This is what we’re talking about when we mention establishments not obeying the rules. This was in Bridgeport over the weekend. The less of this we see, the stronger our response will be. This isn’t fair to all of the restaurants across CT looking out for their customers. pic.twitter.com/lEGKqq8IWy

Bridgeport’s mayor says this was the third violation of COVID executive orders for the unnamed location.
