Weiss told WVIT-TV in New Britain, Connecticut, that the governor attended multiple big gatherings in the days leading up to and following the celebration, and that he favors parties where the majority of guests are known to be vaccinated.
The state of Connecticut imposed limits on the size of indoor parties last year in an attempt to curb the spread of the coronavirus, but no similar restrictions have been imposed this holiday season, according to the article.
According to CTInsider.com, Stamford and Norwalk were among the local governments that reinstated indoor mask restrictions last week in response to an increase in illnesses.
Lamont, a Democrat, has been the governor of Connecticut since January 2019.
