CDC puts six counties under "high" category for COVID-19 transmission 

The Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH) announced Friday that six counties are in a "high" category when it comes to transmission and positivity rates for COVID-19. 

At this time, only Fairfield and New London counties are listed in the medium/yellow category.

“This latest update comes as no surprise considering the trajectory that this latest omicron sub-variant is taking,” said Connecticut Department of Public Health Commissioner Manisha Juthani, MD. “And I cannot stress enough that the tools to combat this virus are in place and easily accessible. These include vaccines, first and second boosters, Test to Treat locations, therapeutics, self-tests and state-supported testing."

Residents living in the High/Orange categories—which include Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, Tolland and Windham Counties-- should wear a mask indoors in public and stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and get tested if they have symptoms, CT DPH said.

Additional precautions may be needed for residents who are at high risk for severe illness, said CT DPH. 

Residents who live in Fairfield and New London Counties—which is listed in the Yellow/Medium Category—who are at high risk for severe illness in these counties should talk to their health care providers about when they need to wear a mask and take other precautions.
