COVID-19 Alert Issued for Danbury

In a tweet tonight, Gov. Ned Lamont said: “If you’re over 60 or have a chronic disease and live in Danbury, you should stay home.

“We need employers to help make sure everyone with symptoms or who was exposed is staying home.

“We can limit spread of the virus if we all work together.”

The state says Danbury recorded at least 178 new COVID-19 cases between Aug. 2 and Aug. 20; only 40 had been reported the two weeks prior.

“This is a serious outbreak in Danbury and we really need an all hands on deck approach. We need everyone in Danbury to take extreme precaution,” said acting DPH Commissioner Deidre Gifford.

“We appreciate the partnership with municipal and health department leadership in Danbury, as well as health care providers that have testing sites available for members of the community.

“We are urging anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to get tested as soon as possible, stay home until your test results are known and stay at home for 10 days if you test positive.”
