As you know, Governor Lamont issued an Executive Order requiring all employers to issue masks or cloth face coverings to employees.

The state is making free masks available to essential businesses as defined by the DECD with 50 or fewer employees. Eligible essential small businesses can request up to two free face coverings per employee by filling out the form found here. This ordering portal is for essential Connecticut businesses, as defined by the State of CT, with 50 employees or less and is for surgical masks only. Please limit your request to 2 masks per employee, one order per company. Orders will be fulfilled via your town’s process for delivering emergency supplies, while supplies last.

The state encourages all small businesses that can create their own face coverings to do so using CDC guidelines to ensure the limited supply of coverings goes to small businesses that are struggling to secure their own supply.

If your not a member of GASDA, email to join [email protected] as you see membership in GASDA pays, as timely information or the lack of timely information can cost your business money as funds will dry up and these FREE Masks will be gone.
