Hartford, CT - Attorney General William Tong on Tuesday released the following statement and guidance on price gouging enforcement after Gov. Ned Lamont declared civil preparedness and public health emergencies in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“I’m hearing reports from Connecticut and around the country of outrageous price hikes on basic supplies like hand sanitizer and disinfectant. Price gouging is wrong. During civil preparedness and public health emergencies, it is also against Connecticut law. The Office of the Attorney General will take aggressive action to protect consumers from price gouging and punish unfair profiteering. Now is the time to come together, to stay calm and listen to the public health experts. Price gougers take advantage of our fear. Don’t let these predators profit off your panic,” said Attorney General Tong.

A copy of the price gouging guidance is available here.
