DMV and Other Connecticut State Agencies To Fully Re-Open June 1
More good news in our quest to get back to some sort of normal. Looks like Connecticut State Agencies will re-open for business on June 1.
I know one of the things your missed more than anything during the pandemic was waiting in that long line at the DMV. Well as of June 1, you'll be able to experience that feeling all over again. For many it will feel like the first time.....not.
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont made the official announcement late last week that as of June 1 many of the state agencies that deal with the public on a day to day basis will be fully re-open. This includes State Departments like Social Services, Labor, and the Department of Motor Vehicles.
According to patch.com, residents will be able to wait on that long line again at the DMV, or be able to haggle with the person behind the counter at the Department of Labor. Boy do we miss that stuff.
Now in case you actually got used to doing it on line, which became very popular during the lockdowns, that option will remain on the table for you as well, but let's be honest, you miss that mean lady or guy behind the window.
The Governor also announced that on July 1, state office workers will be required to return to their offices with at least 50 percent of the office staff reporting to work, and the other 50 percent working remote. This measure is the state's way of talking advantage of less workers in the office, therefore being able to downsize the office space used by the state.
This re-opening decision was fueled by the latest COVID-19 vaccine numbers released by the State Department of Health. The data shows that almost 2 million residents have had at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, and over 1.5 million have been fully vaccinated.
