MONROE — First Selectman Ken Kellogg’s update on the COVID-19 pandemic showed there were two new positive cases in town over the past week. Since the pandemic began, Monroe has had a total of 155 cases.
“While the state’s overall test positivity rate remains in the ‘low’ category, it has continued to average over 1 percent during the past week,” Kellogg wrote in his update Friday.
Gov. Ned Lamont indicated that, unless the metrics change significantly, Connecticut’s Phase 3 reopening continues to be on schedule for October 8, 2020, according to Kellogg.
While following Phase 3 of the reopening plan, the first selectman said there will be continued opportunities to provide greater access to in-person town services, in addition to the ongoing remote servicing. He said further details will be finalized and provided next week.
