Governor Ned Lamont is directing Connecticut’s extreme hot weather protocol to
be activated beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, and remaining in
effect through 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 5, 2022. The purpose of the protocol is to
ensure that the most vulnerable populations receive protection from the hot
conditions. While enacted, a system is set up for state agencies, municipalities, and
other partners to coordinate with United Way 2-1-1 to make sure that information
regarding cooling centers is available statewide, providing a location to get some
relief from the hot conditions.
