The State of CT is currently vaccinating healthcare personnel, medical responders and staff, residents and staff of select congregate settings, pre-k through 12 school staff and teachers, professional childcare providers, and, as of April 1, 2021, individuals 12 and older. 

At this time the Trumbull Health Department (THD), only has the Moderna vaccine. The Johnson& Johnson and Pfizer vaccine will not be offered at our upcoming clinics. 

The THD continues to hold COVID vaccination clinics for residents.  Those 12 years and older are eligible for vaccinations.  Currently, THD is administering the Moderna vaccine to those 18 years and older.  The Moderna vaccine is administered in two doses, 28-42 days apart. 

If you are 12-17 years old, you will need to schedule an appointment for the Pfizer vaccine.  This is the only vaccine that has been approved for this age group at this time.  Most hospital based clinics administer Pfizer.  If you are in need of an appointment, contact 2-1-1 for a listing of available clinics or call 877-918-2224.

Please understand that vaccine supply remains limited and that appointments continue to be scheduled as vaccine arrives weekly.

Masks In Connecticut

All remaining business restrictions in Connecticut have ended. Based on the new CDC guidance, the Governor has stated that individuals that are fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks indoors, unless required by the specific business or organization. Outdoor masks are only recommended for certain large events.  Guidance on these events will be issued by the Connecticut Department of Public Health.

Outdoors:

  • Masks not required

Indoors:

  • Vaccinated not required to wear masks
  • Unvaccinated must continue to wear masks
  • Business, state and local government offices & events may choose to require universal masking
  • Masks still required in certain settings
    • Healthcare facilities, facilities housing vulnerable populations, public & private transit, correctional facilities, schools, childcare

Throughout the pandemic the Town has delivered services to our residents and businesses. Town Hall reopened to the public in July 2020 using a hybrid schedule for our employees.  Since that time we modified operations when necessary to keep the public and Town employees healthy and safe.  It is anticipated that Town Hall operations will return to a pre COVID model by June 21, 2021. Some departments, however, will continue on a hybrid schedule based on available space, the vaccination rate of our employees, and any changes to state guidance. This has not and will not diminish our ability to deliver services to our community. 

During this phase-in period, in order to continue to protect the public and our town employees we will require face coverings for members of the public entering all our town buildings. 

Business Sector Rules in Effect

All of the business sector rules that were previously enacted to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted, except for the updated mask requirements as noted in the section above. These changes are contingent upon a low incidence of COVID-19 and the Connecticut population continuing to get vaccinated.
