The following is an update from First Selectman Ken Kellogg:
MONROE, CT — This week, the Governor announced the establishment of a $100 fine for violation of his Executive Orders regarding the wearing of masks.
Additional state fines were announced for violation of the social gathering size restrictions, in the amount of $250 for attending and $500 for organizing or hosting such an event.
While the state’s overall test positivity rate remains relatively low compared to other states, it has continued a concerning trend of over one percent.
Small public gatherings
We continue to identify opportunities to allow for smaller public meetings to proceed in-person, consistent with the continued “re-opening” of the state.
Certain boards, commissions, and committees, with anticipated low attendance, may be conducted in-person with appropriate social distancing and face coverings. Public access to larger meetings will continue to be provided remotely.
The agenda of each meeting will provide these details for each meeting.
• Town Hall remains open by appointment. Please call departments for assistance. Appointments for many departments may be made online at www.MonroeCT.org/appointments.
• Remember that state rules regarding limitations on gatherings, wearing face coverings, and compliance with the state travel advisory remain in effect.
