As Connecticut Begins Phase 2 Reopening, Confusion Over Who Should Get COVID 19 Test

Jun 16, 2020

A greater portion of COVID-19 tests have come back negative in Connecticut compared with other states, which the Governor’s team says is a good sign.

But who should be getting tested as the state rolls out its phase two reopening on Wednesday?

This hour, we talk with Governor Lamont’s Chief Operating Officer Josh Geballe about this latest phase of reopening Connecticut's economy. And we hear from Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin about the state's latest testing guidance for city residents. We ask: should asymptomatic people get a COVID-19 test?

Later in the hour, we also hear a story from Connecticut Public reporter Frankie Graziano, about grieving the loss of a loved one during a pandemic.

GUESTS:

  • Josh Geballe - Chief Operating Officer of the State of Connecticut, also the Commissioner of the Department of Administrative Services
  • Mayor Luke Bronin - Mayor of Hartford
  • Frankie Graziano – Reporter for Connecticut Public Radio
