First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice and CT Gov. Ned Lamont provided daily updates on the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, for Wednesday, June 10.

Vanderslice said that several items of information were shared with municipal leaders on a call Wednesday with the governor’s staff:

  • The CT Department of Labor (DOL) continues to be delayed in processing claims. Phone calls and emails continue to remain unanswered. This week, 20 newly trained employees have been added to the call center.  Another 20 newly trained employees will be added in two weeks. In a month, CT DOL expects to set up a 60-person service center for phone inquiries and emails.
  • According to Betsy Bye, Commissioner of Early Childhood Services, the current childcare supply is down 85% versus the pre-Coronavirus supply.
  • A comprehensive executive order for Phase 2 should be released by Monday, June 15.  According to Vanderslice, “This delayed release provides only one day in between the release of the order and the start of Phase 2.”
