Dear New Haven County Bar Association Members,

 

The safety, health and well-being of our members, our staff and the greater community in which we all live and work remain our first priority.

 

Following Governor Lamont’s declaration of civil preparedness and public health emergencies, the NHCBA is taking the following steps in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus):

 

· Events and Programs: The NHCBA will not host in-person programs, CLE seminars, or meetings beginning Friday, March 13 through Friday, April 24.

· CLE seminars: All CLE seminars will be either postponed or held virtually via Zoom meeting, at the discretion of the speakers. If you have registered for a CLE during this period, you will receive a separate notification regarding the seminar.

· Committee Meetings: All in-person meetings will be held virtually, via telephone conference or virtual meeting, or canceled. NHCBA staff will reach out to coordinate details in the next few days with Committee Chairs.

· NHCBA Office: The NHCBA staff will be working from home until further notice. The telephone lines, including the Lawyer Referral Service, have been forwarded to the staff’s home offices.

 

We will continue to monitor the advice of local and state health officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), and adjust plans as appropriate.

 

Additional information about COVID-19 and recommended practices for safe habits can be found at the CDC website at cdc.gov, or at the State’s coronavirus information website at www.ct.gov/coronavirus.

 

Additionally, the most recent notices from the Connecticut State and Federal courts regarding the protocols that they are implementing at the courthouses can be viewed at jud,ct,gov and ctd.uscourts.gov.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Gillian Fattal

Executive Director

New Haven County Bar Association
