No curfew in Danbury, but Mayor cautions it could happen

State officials say hospitals in Connecticut were not overwhelmed by patients because people, for the most part, followed social distancing guidelines of keeping 6 feet from others, not gathering in groups of more than 5 and staying away from playground equipment. 

But some are concerned that there could be flare ups as summer approaches.  Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says there is no curfew, yet.  Boughton says he reserves the right to implement one if, as the weather warms up, people gather in large groups.  There could be a curfew after 9pm, but that's not happening right now. 

Meanwhile, the organization that oversees high school sports in Connecticut says spring sports could be played if schools reopen, but would only take place in the month of June. The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference also decided Thursday to cancel all spring state championship tournaments.

The CIAC says athletes will be required to have at least 10 days of practice or conditioning before any competition resumes, but says five of those conditioning days may occur at home. 

The CIAC said it surveyed superintendents, principals and athletic directors in addition to the student-athletes themselves, as well as parents, before making these decisions. The organization also consulted with the Connecticut State Medical Society, Sports Medicine Committee and the Department of Public Health and stayed in constant communication with Education Department Commissioner Miguel Cardona.
