MONROE, CT — Monroe’s two-week rolling case rate for COVID-19 dropped again and is now down to an average of just over four new cases per day, according to First Selectman Ken Kellogg.

In his latest update on the virus Friday, Kellogg said the town’s two-week case rate is 22 cases per 100,000 population. As of Thursday’s report, Monroe has had 1,388 cases and 15 deaths since the start of the pandemic.

The town continues to run vaccination clinics on Wednesdays.

“In addition to making an appointment through VAMS, we are now welcoming walk-ins between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.,” Kellogg said. “We are currently offering both Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”

Starting this Saturday, the state of Connecticut will move the curfew for restaurants, entertainment venues, recreation venues and theaters to midnight. Establishments may also serve alcohol outdoors without food, according to Kellogg.
