Gov. Ned Lamont let it be known last week that most pandemic-induced venue capacity limits statewide would be a thing of the past as of March 19. Many are hailing this move as a harbinger of a return to normalcy after a year of dealing with the coronavirus. But not everyone is so sanguine. Nathan Grubaugh is an assistant professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health. He joined All Things Considered to talk about the Twitter thread he dropped on Thursday soon after the governor’s announcement. In his March 4 tweet, he called reopening Connecticut on the 19th a “terrible idea.”
