NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (AP) – A State Department of Health employee said he was fired after questioning the department’s power to issue a fine that allegedly violated state rules on the size of the crowd amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The New Haven Register reports that Av Harris, a spokesperson for the Connecticut Department of Public Health, was abruptly fired on New Years Eve.

Her attorney, Irene Bassock, wrote in a letter to a DPH attorney that Harris had raised concerns about interference with an ongoing criminal investigation and the health department’s legal authority to impose a $ 10,000 fine. at a sports bar in Bridgeport.

“The facts show that his abrupt dismissal is unlawful retaliation for reporting potentially illegal activity,” Bassock told the newspaper. “Instead of firing him, Mr. Harris should be praised for the way he has performed his job ethically.

A request for comment was sent to Governor Ned Lamont’s office for comment.
