Governor Lamont signs 25th executive order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19

Governor Lamont today signed another executive order – the 25th since he enacted the emergency declarations – that builds upon his efforts to encourage mitigation strategies that slow down transmission of the virus.

Governor Lamont’s Executive Order No. 7X enacts the following provisions:

  • Protections for residential renters impacted by COVID-19: Enacts a series of protections for residential renters during the public health crisis.


  • Continued cancellation of school classes through May 20, 2020: Extends the date for which classes at schools statewide remain canceled until at least May 20, 2020.


  • Extension of closures, distancing, and safety measures through May 20, 2020: Extends the date for all previously enacted closures, distancing, and safety measures until at least May 20. This includes previously enacted limits on restaurant, bar, and private club operations; closure of on-site operations at off-track betting facilities; closure of operations at gyms, sports, fitness, and recreation facilities and movie theaters; closure of large shopping malls; closure of places of public amusement; safety and distancing measures for workplaces and non-essential businesses, prohibition on social and recreational gatherings of more than five people; and restrictions on retail operations.


  • Modification or deferral of educator certification testing: Modifies state statutes to authorize the commissioner of Department of Education to temporarily defer any requirements regarding certification testing for educators as he deems necessary to address the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.


  • Permission to operate food trucks at rest areas: Lifts restrictions on commercial activity in Connecticut highway rest areas and permits food trucks to set up in these locations with the goal of feeding hungry truckers and other essential workers during the pandemic. This applies at the rest areas located in Danbury on I-84; Wallingford and Middletown on I-91; and North Stonington on I-95. Food truck operators interested in participating must obtain a permit from the CTDOT, which requires a valid license issued by a local health department or health district to serve food in Connecticut.
