MONROE, CT — A study by Covid ActNow lists Connecticut as one of only four states categorized as “on track to contain COVID,” according to First Selectman Ken Kellogg’s update on the pandemic, issued Friday.
“This is in stark contrast to many states in our country where Covid-19 is increasing, and in some states quite dramatically,” he said.
Kellogg said this highlights the importance of social distancing and wearing masks.
“State public health officials have emphasized these two tools to be our ‘first line of defense’ in this pandemic,” he said. “Please do your part to keep our state and town safe.”
Since the last weekly report was issued by the state, Monroe had four new cases, bringing its total to 117.
Gov. Ned Lamont expects to release more information on Phase 3 of the state’s reopening plan next week, according to Kellogg.
Wolfe Park pool opening
The first selectman also gave an update on the Wolfe Park pool. He said it will be open by reservation starting Monday, July 6.
“There are various changes in pool operations this season due to Covid-19 requirements available online at the Parks & Recreation website,” Kellogg said.
