Even though Connecticut's economy is now 97% open, Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says the state is keeping coronavirus under control. He attributed this to people being diligent about wearing masks in public. Knickerbocker says wearing a mask reduces the risk of contracting coronavirus by 70%. He added that in speaking with residents, that when people walk into a store and see other customers without masks, they often turn around and leave. Knickerbocker says that hurts the store owner’s chances of getting through this crisis. He urged residents and visitors to wear a mask when out.
