MONROE, CT — Public Health experts from the state of Connecticut expect the total number of positive COVID-19 cases to continue to rise in Fairfield County, before peaking in two-to-three weeks.

In his update Sunday, First Selectman Ken Kellogg said Monroe has 10 laboratory confirmed cases.

“What’s important to remember is that we can still make a difference in the outcome,” he said. “As we all prepare for yet another week of social distancing, I want to emphasize just how important this is for all of us. The actions we take now, as individuals, impact our entire community. Thank you for doing your part.”

According to the latest update on the town website, there are 5,675 cases in Connecticut with 3,050 cases in Fairfield County.
