Connecticut officials say the impact of the pandemic on students and their families could lead to long-term changes in how the school day and school year look in the state. On Thursday, Gov. Ned Lamont joined federal and state political leaders and local and state education officials to discuss the future of education, including using federal funds to combat pandemic-based learning loss. Meanwhile, Connecticut has a second FEMA mobile vaccination clinic that will provide people with dose doses after the administration of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine was put on hold. Also, the number of variant cases is growing.
