Lamont, commissioner still optimistic about school reopening

Gov. Ned Lamont and state Education Commissioner Miguel Cardona said Tuesday they remain pleased with how the reopening of Connecticut's public schools has been going. Cardona said there have been about 370 cases of infected students and about 150 cases of infected staff reported to state officials since schools opened in August. He said the infection rate for students, who appeared to have contracted COVID-19 off-campus, is less than 1%, which is lower than the statewide infection rate. Meanwhile, the state's largest teachers' union released a survey from teachers highlighting the disparities between wealthier and needier districts over protective measures.
