    DPH Issues COVID-19 Alert to Danbury Community After Significant Spike in New Cases

    Today, August 25, at 11:00 a.m., Governor Ned Lamont will hold a news conference in Danbury to discuss the recent spike of COVID-19 cases in Danbury. The Connecticut Department of Public Health on Friday evening issued a COVID-19 alert for Danbury. The governor will be joined by Mayor Mark Boughton, Connecticut Department of Public Health Acting Commissioner Dr. Deidre Gifford, City of Danbury Acting Health Director Kara Prunty, and other local officials.

    On August 21, the Connecticut Department of Public Health issued a COVID-19 alert for Danbury after a significant increase in cases in the last two weeks, with much of the outbreak related to recent domestic and international travel.  Connecticut is requiring anyone traveling to the state from many other US states to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.  In addition, the CDC recommends anyone returning from international travel from countries with wide spread transmission of COVID-19 to self-quarantine for the same period of time.  DPH is coordinating with municipal and local health officials in Danbury to get the word out among community centers and churches to take extra precautions, immediately.  Those precautions include: staying home when possible and limiting outings, wearing masks anytime you leave home, limiting indoor gatherings to only those you live with, refraining from attending large church services for the time being, and not attending large outdoor gatherings.  Between August 2–20, Danbury recorded at least 178 new COVID-19 cases, a sharp increase over the previous two-week period when only 40 new cases were recorded. read more...
