FROM: Stephen M. Morelli, Chairman
DATE: March 25, 2020
RE: Submission of WCC Forms During COVID-19 Pandemic

Given the directives and measures being taken to contain the spread of COVID-19, the requirements for certain forms to be sent via certified mail under the workers' compensation act is hereby suspended per Section 31-321, effective March 25, 2020.

The Commission will now accept forms via standard mail delivery services or facsimile. It may be advisable to maintain copies and take any other measures which would support proof of the delivery and receipt of any forms should subsequent substantiation be necessary.

Additionally, given the Governor's recent Executive Order allowing remote notarizations, the Commission will now be accepting documents notarized pursuant to Executive Order No. 7K.

Executive Order No. 7K can be found on the Governor's website here.
