Connecticut’s vaccine mandate requiring state employees to be vaccinated for the Chinese coronavirus goes into effect Monday, and hundreds of school bus drivers are expected to not show up to work in protest.
Gov. Ned Lamont (D) announced the mandate in mid-August, which requires state workers, school employees, and childcare workers to receive at least one coronavirus shot by Monday, September 27. Those who qualify for “certain exemptions” under his order are required to undergo weekly testing, although the governor’s office made it clear that state hospital workers “will not have the option of being tested in lieu of vaccination.”
