NORWALK, Conn. — The Omicron variant is prompting an unhappy holiday gift for your stockings: Norwalk’s mask mandate has been reinstated.
As of 5 p.m. Thursday, everyone is required to wear face coverings when inside public places, regardless of vaccination status, in an executive order issued by Mayor Harry Rilling.
“This order is temporary and is being issued in response to the voluminous and rapid rise of COVID-19 cases in the community and the contagious nature of the Omicron variant that continues to rapidly spread. The mandate will be continually evaluated and reviewed in consultation with the Norwalk Health Department and will remain in effect until transmission rates decrease,” a City news release said.

Norwalk Public Schools Chief Financial Officer Thomas Hamilton speaks to the Board of Education, Tuesday in City Hall.
NORWALK, Conn. — Everyone knows Norwalk’s school buildings have been neglected, Norwalk Public Schools Chief Financial Officer Thomas Hamilton said.
To that end, NPS is kicking off “a discussion” with the city by presenting a plan to spend $54 million on renovating West Rocks Middle School in three years and $52 million on Nathan Hale Middle School two years after that, said Hamilton, who is retiring. Major investments would follow every two years, in that same magnitude.
Each season, the celebration of Christmas has religious leaders and conservatives publicly complaining about the commercialization of the holiday and the growing lack of Christian sentiment.
