While many Connecticut residents are working from home during the pandemic, it looks like some of them will get a snow day too based on the number of cancellations.

The General Assembly’s Public Health Committee canceled its virtual public hearing and while some schools have chosen to do remote learning, many have declared it a good old fashion snow day.

NBC meteorologists are predicting 10 to 16 inches across the state with many towns seeing a foot of snow.

The University of Connecticut canceled all online and in-person classes today with the exception of UConn Health.

The Department of Public Health announced Sunday that vaccine providers throughout the state may be forced to cancel vaccination appointments scheduled for today and possibly Tuesday, February 2, due to the storm. Individuals with appointments scheduled for the beginning of this week who have not already been contacted to cancel and reschedule their appointments should contact their provider directly to check on the status of their appointment. 

Anyone with questions about their appointment can also call 211 or the Vaccine Appointments Assist Line at 877-918-2224.

Even though Gov. Ned Lamont has banned tractor trailers from Connecticut’s highways he is still allowing the transport of vaccine or other medical supplies.
