Gov. Ned Lamont says with New Year’s Eve coming up, people still need to keep their guard up.

“It’s a very cautious couple of weeks we’ve got coming up and urge you to do everything you can going forward for a little bit longer. And I know New Year’s Eve is a time for great merriment. Unfortunately, you know, the restaurants, bars aren’t open. Restaurants closing at 10 o’clock. Stay close to home,” Lamont said.

The governor says the state’s effort to vaccine residents is going well. Nearly 55,000 doses have been administered in Connecticut so far.
