The following is an update from First Selectman Ken Kellogg:

MONROE, CT — As of Sunday morning, the State Department of Public Health reports the number of Covid-19 cases in Monroe at 106.

As you have probably heard, the Governor has moved Phase 2 of the Re-Open Connecticut Plan to June 17. Included in Phase 2 is indoor dining and recreation, movie theaters, gyms and fitness centers, and personal services such as nail salons and massage therapy.

There are specific business rules, such as a 50 percent indoor capacity limit for most business that reopen. Links to the state sector rules are on the town’s Covid-19 website page.

The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library will resume curbside, “Library to Go” service on Monday, June 15, while we continue the process to plan and prepare for indoor service in the future.

Camping at Webb Mountain will resume on Friday, June 12. Contact the Parks & Recreation Department for camping reservations and permits starting tomorrow.

We are very happy to announce that our Summer Fun Days Camp program will be held from June 22 – Aug. 14, following all the necessary state rules and CDC guidelines. Please check the Parks & Recreation website for more information, as spots are limited.

The last couple of weeks have been very emotional for our community and our country. We share in the sadness and anger over the disturbing scenes that we have witnessed, starting with the death of George Floyd, and continuing with acts of violence.

I want to thank our Monroe Police Officers who join me in condemning the actions of the former Minneapolis officers, and to our Monroe residents who exercised their rights by doing so peacefully together and commit to continue this important conversation in our community.
