Many of Monroe Parks and Recreation's summer programs are held at Wolfe Park.

The following is an update from First Selectman Ken Kellogg:

MONROE, CT — I’m happy to report that we have gone a full week without any new Covid-19 cases, as reported by the State Department of Public Health.

That said, new cases continue to be reported in Fairfield County. We must recognize that the pandemic is not over, and remember to practice the safety guidelines as we look forward to phase two of the state’s re-opening on Wednesday.

We continue to work on the phased re-opening of town facilities. I’m pleased to announce that our team has a plan to open both the Wolfe Park pool and Great Hollow Lake in early July. To be consistent with the state rules, there will be some changes. The Parks & Recreation Department will be posting information on their website in the near future on pool operations during this unusual season.

Finally, I will be putting these weekly CodeRED phone calls on hold, unless there is a significant update. We will continue to post regular updates on the town’s website at www.MonroeCT.org/covid-19, and on the town’s Facebook page.

I want to thank our great Monroe community for being caring and resilient during this extended crisis.
