Wilton Businesses: What They’re Doing to Cope

UPDATE  11 a.m.:  Monday morning Gov. Lamont (along with governors from NY and NJ) announced temporary moves that impact businesses across the tri-state area. Movie theaters, gyms, exercise studios, and casinos will temporarily close; restaurants and bars that serve food will temporarily move to takeout and deliver service only.
