Gov. unmoved by Danbury Superintendent request to move teachers up vaccination priority list

Danbury's Superintendent of Schools wants teachers and staff in communities like Danbury to be vaccinated sooner rather than later, given that the City has experienced rapid COVID-19 spread. School buildings only just reopened for the first time in 10 months.  But Governor Ned Lamont was not swayed.

He said he gets calls every day from different groups that ought to be at the front of the line.  But he's remaining focused on the most vulnerable populations, 75 and 65 years old, noting that an advisory committee is going to have to figure out the essential workers from there.  Lamont added that teachers will be near the front of that group.

Four COVID-19 cases among Danbury students and staff led 70 people to quarantine since last Monday when some students started back up in a hybrid model.
