Lamont Coordinating Multi-state COVID Policy For Returning Students

Gov. Ned Lamont says he is working with other states to coordinate a coronavirus policy on what college students should do when they travel long distances to return home for Thanksgiving. Speaking on Connecticut Public Radio's Where We Live Monday, Lamont says college students will be asked to quarantine or get a COVID-19 test before they cross state lines to return home. Students will also be asked to take a second test after they arrive. The governor says many of those young people will be returning from parts of the country with very high infection rates. Lamont says he wants to make sure the state does not pick up a COVID-19 hornets nest, if infected students pass the illness around.
