Lamont Says He's Planning More Restaurant Help

As restaurant owners plan to protest in Hartford Monday, to demand for more help to survive the pandemic, Gov. Ned Lamont says he is working on ways to give them more financial help.

"We are trying to find ways we can provide support," the governor said at a Wednesday press conference. "I was hoping to be a bridge to federal support just like last time around with the PPP, but I’m going to do what I can at the state level -- not as much as anybody wants, but enough to be a help."

Lamont noted restaurants are open for limited indoor dining right now, and he has no plans to change that at this point.

The governors of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York have announced plans to roll back reopening plans, but Lamont says most of their new protocols are in line with what Connecticut has in place now.
