COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Jan. 27, 2023: The CDC has listed three Connecticut Counties—Litchfield, Middlesex and New Haven Counties—in the High/Orange category as part of its weekly COVID-19 Community Levels update. Fairfield, Hartford, New London, Tolland and Windham Counties are listed in the Medium/Yellow category.  Because all eight Connecticut counties are either in the High or Medium categories, the Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Map for updates.

Verification from the appropriate authority confirming the applicant's most recent employment including dates and overall evaluation of the applicant's ability to practice podiatry with reasonable skill and safety.

Applicants for reinstatement who have been out of the active practice of podiatry for longer than 6 months are presented to the Connecticut Board of Examiners in Podiatry.  The Department seeks the Board's recommendation as to the applicant's suitability for reinstatement.  The Board could recommend additional requirements that must be met prior to reinstatement including, but not limited to, a period of supervised practice, successful completion of the national boards or continuing education.  The Board meets quarterly.  Applicants will receive further information from the Department upon receipt of all required documentation.
