(HARTFORD, CT) – Max Reiss, Director of Communications for Governor Ned Lamont, today released the following statement regarding the announcement made this afternoon by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection that it has issued a summary suspension of the liquor permit for an establishment in Hamden that was found to be in violation of sector rules implemented in response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis:

“The Lamont administration applauds the work of local authorities in Hamden to enforce the sector rules that are designed to protect public health and prevent the spread of COVID-19. We continue to see local officials standing up across the state to look out for the health and well-being of their residents, and that sends a clear signal that they are taking the virus seriously. Reckless and irresponsible gatherings of hundreds of people pose a high risk of becoming ‘super-spreader’ events, and the actions of these individuals could very well lead to outbreaks not just in Connecticut, but throughout the Northeast. Governor Lamont’s announcement of the shift to Phase 2.1 is meant to cut down on these kinds of events to ensure our healthcare institutions like hospitals and nursing homes are able to care for our loved ones, to keep restaurant and entertainment venues open, and to keep as many of our schools open as possible so that as many students as possible can receive in-person instruction. This action in Hamden affirms Governor Lamont’s approach.”
