Lamont: State Employees Are Headed Back To The Office

Many state employees who have been working from home for more than a year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic will soon be returning physically to the office, Gov. Ned Lamont said this week.

Customer-facing government offices like those at the Departments of Motor Vehicles, Social Services, and Labor will reopen for walk-in business on June 1, the governor said. Meanwhile, most of the remaining executive branch employees will be required back at the office to varying degrees on July 1, he said.

Were going to get back to sort of our pre-COVID rules, which is we want most people coming back into the office, Lamont said during a news briefing. We do have the rules where up to 50% can telecommute, but were going to start getting people back to the office on a more regular basis starting July 1. I think its time and I think it makes it easier for people to connect.

The governor said that some COVID-related adaptations would still be available to residents who need to interact with government agencies. For instance, people can still make appointments before visiting the Labor Department, Social Services Department or DMV. Lamont said people can still conduct much of their DMV business online if they choose.
