Practitioner Licensing & Investigations Section

The Department of Public Health has been notified that there is a “phishing” email making its way through Connecticut, targeting license holders with the State of Connecticut. The email appears to be from the state (though it is not), and asks credential holders to follow a link to a web page that looks like the state’s eLicense system. There they are asked to validate their license by entering personal information, such as name, address, social security number and date of birth.


To protect your personal information, please do not provide any information without ensuring that you are at the legitimate site, which is and requires a login to update personal information.

Due to a potential healthcare workforce strain from the COVID-19 situation, the Commissioner of Public Health signed an order on March 23, 2020, allowing individuals licensed and in good standing, in specified professions, in another state to work in Connecticut without obtaining a Connecticut license for up to 60 days.  An additional Commissioner's Order signed on May 15, 2020, extended the suspension of the licensing requirement through July 22, 2020.


A Commissioner's Order signed May 15, 2020, allows for individuals licensed in good standing in another  state, in specified professions, to work in Connecticut without obtaining a license.
