That rate trends up due to the latest coronavirus statistics released Friday:

  • 33,048  tests were administered and 802 came back positive.
  • 184 patients are hospitalized (decrease of 7).
  • There have been 2 COVID-related deaths.

The state introduced a new mapping tool that will be used to show towns with increased cases of COVID-19.

Gov. Lamont said Thursday that Canterbury, Danbury, East Lyme, Griswold, Hartford, Montville, Norwich, New London, Preston, Sprague and Windham were the municipalities with more than 15 cases per 100,000.

That places them under a Red alert.
