Ned Lamont

(HARTFORD, CT) – As their administrations continue developing strategies for the safe reopening of sectors of the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Ned Lamont of Connecticut and Governor Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island today announced their intention to align the reopening of hair salons and barbershops in their respective states in early June.

Hair salons and barbershops were initially included in Phase 1 of Connecticut’s reopen plan, which begins May 20, however Governor Lamont said that after having extensive discussions with owners and employees of these businesses he feels that it is in everyone’s best interests to provide for some additional preparation time and also align the state with its regional partners.

Governor Lamont said, “We’ve been hearing a lot of feedback from many owners and employees, and at this time I think the best approach is that we hit pause on the reopening of hair salons and barbershops, take a step back, and allow some more time as preparations continue to be made.”

Governor Raimondo said, “I know how hard this crisis has been on close-contact businesses like hair salons and barbershops, and we’re working around the clock to get you back to work quickly and safely. We look forward to continuing to coordinate with our regional partners are we work toward reopening these businesses in early June.”

But he will get elected again by hair stylists and others who always vote democrat for they want pro choice...they don't care how their lives are ruined by politicians like Lamont...they just want the choice to murder a baby

Listen...who cares about pro choice or pro life...call it for what it is - Murder..I don't care one way or the other....I say pro-choice or pro murder...big deal...would rather have babies killed before born than be brought up by bad parents....also, let bring back death penalty for adults...

Never understood how someone can be pro-choice/pro murder for babies but not for death penalty.

Lots of folks on death row/prison that should be put to death.

Also, if you are one of those wackado global warming freaks...the more people society kills the better for mother earth!...right?

hahahahahahahahahhahahahaha

Your points are noted. And to that extent, people that are pro-choice, but anti-mask (and other methods to reduce the spread of the virus), how do you feel about that?

And abortion vs. capital punishment, interesting argument. That said, many who are pro-life are also pro-death penalty. A Catch-22.

one big hoax covid19....china's way of bringing down Trump...only 100k died so far in USA

YOU WILL SEE SOON THAT WEARING A MASK DOES NOTHING BUT FOLLOW THE CROWD AS USUAL PEOPLE AND REMEMBER TO GO ON FACEBOOK AND LIKE SOMEONE TAKING A PICTURE OF THEIR DINNER....BUNCH OF LOSERS!

Herd Imunnity will solve this.

btw...all the liberal anti american "experts" that predicted 2.2 million dead were dead wrong..

NEVER BELIEVE EXPERTS AND MODELING AGAIN. the guy in UK was just caught that his numbers were wrong and he was doing the wife of another guy.

Great thing about this hoax - people can now see that models, experts and democrats are always wrong and want to control people by models!

Global warming/cooling whatever they want to call it today ---- ALL BASED ON MODELS FROM SAME GROUP OF LIARS THAT PREDICTED 2.2 MILLION DEAD...AND DON'T GIVE ME THAT MEDIGATION GARBAGE...CUOMO WAS SUPRISED MORE PEOPLE ARE DYING OF COVID WHO SHELLTERED IN PLACE.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS....NEVER BELIEVE GOV, EPIDEMOGISTS, DOCTORS, HOSPITALS AND MODELERS EVER AGAIN...THE ALL WILL LIE TO YOU AND LOVE THE POWER THEY GET FROM DOING IT!

MOST THAT ARE PRO LIFE ARE FOR DEATH PENALITY FOR BABY IS INNOCENT AND PERSON PUT TO DEATH DID THE CRIME THEMSELVES AND AT LEAST HAD CHANCE TO BE GOOD OR BAD ....

When businesses report taxable losses, Gov Lamont can look back at decisions like this one and realize that he should have opened sooner. Many barbershops and hair were ready to open on May 20th. Those businesses were prepared. The decision to be influenced by those who were not is improper decision making at the highest State level. The May 20th opening date was known early enough for everyone to be prepared. Extending the opening date to June 1st is caving to the weakest links.

Did you realise that Lamont hired a person to the tune of 2 million to help reopen are state?

The entire Southern United states will be closed down by the end of June and by August there will be 200,000 dead Americans from Covid 19 because of TRUMP and his idiot followers.
