CTMEETINGS: Connecticut COVID-19 Resources

As of February 28, 2022, Connecticut mask mandates are now relaxed throughout the state. It is up to local governments and private businesses to decide whether or not to have their own mask mandates. Masks are required (regardless of vaccination status) in private businesses with their own mask mandates, schools that require mask mandates, healthcare settings, and state and local government departments that require masks inside specific buildings. The federal government requires wearing masks while using public transit.

With Connecticut's meetings and hospitality industries now fully open, the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTMEETINGS) - Connecticut's statewide Destination Marketing Organization - is working together with state departments and local municipalities, the Connecticut Lodging Association and the Connecticut Restaurant Association to ensure compliance with the current health and safety guidelines within the hospitality industry.
