New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker Says Current COVID-19 Rules Aren't Strict Enough

Nov 23, 2020

COVID-19 cases continue to grow in Connecticut. And although the governor’s office has rolled the state’s reopening back not all municipal leaders think it’s enough.

This hour, we talk with New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker, who’s called for a further rollback that would halt indoor dining.  What impact would this have on Elm City businesses?

And we find out how students in New Haven are doing. Most haven’t had in-person school since the spring. 

Are you a New Haven resident? We take your questions and comments for the mayor.

Later in the hour, we check in with Yale New Haven Hospital. With rising cases, how is hospital capacity holding up?

GUESTS:

  • Mayor Justin Elicker - Mayor of New Haven, Connecticut
  • Michael Holmes - Senior Vice President of Operations at Yale New Haven Hospital, as well as the Incident Command Officer
  • Dr. Lauren Ferrante - Assistant professor of medicine in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Yale School of Medicine
