Insurance Grace Period
For 60 days beginning April 1, no insurer regulated by the Connecticut Department of Insurance – including life, health, auto, property and casualty – may lapse or terminate a covered policy because the policyholder is unable to pay the premium or interest during this time. Policyholders must check with their carriers to determine their eligibility for this grace period.
Personal Protective Equipment Needed
The Central CT Chambers of Commerce is partnering with CBIA, the Connecticut Hospital Association and United Way of Connecticut 211 to secure donations of personal protective equipment such as N95 masks, medical supplies, and other supplies from businesses and organizations across the state.
Unfortunately, the shortage of critical supplies is hampering the response to the coronavirus pandemic and endangering the health and safety of those on the front lines of this fight.
Many in the business community have in stock, or access to, supplies that can be used in hospitals, health systems, and other healthcare providers in the state.

There are two ways to donate:
  1. To donate to a specific hospital in your area, please email CHA’s Brian Cournoyer, at and he will connect you with hospital staff.
  2. To donate to the general hospital fund in Connecticut, please follow this link: 211-Medical Supply Donations ( )
 In this time of crisis, we stand together and ask that you help support and protect our healthcare providers by donating supplies.
