Brookfield Remains COVID Red, Transmission Due to Social Gatherings

COVID Cases in Brookfield
 
As of yesterday, Thursday the 12th of November, Brookfield is still in the Red Zone.
 
Between the last two weeks reported, ending last Saturday the 7th, we have reported 53 new cases of the virus in Brookfield. That moves our rate per 100K residents to 22.3. The threshold to be in the red zone is 15 cases per 100K residents. Total cases in Brookfield are now over 300 in total since the start of the pandemic. 
 
We remain with 9 deaths and 5 residents hospitalized. The trend is going in the opposite direction that we need it to go. There are now 100 towns and cities in CT classified in the red zone, 52 classified on the orange zone and 13 in the yellow zone. Only 18 communities are in the grey zone.
 
Transmission has occurred as a result of social gatherings, family gatherings and larger group gatherings at restaurants, where masks are not worn and social distancing is violated. 
 
The State has issued an advisory for everyone to stay home between the hours of 10 PM and 5 AM. This applies to everyone except essential workers who must leave home to work or those who need to seek medical care or to purchase medical supplies, food or groceries.
 
We request that everyone please stay home as much as possible and if you do need to go out, please wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands frequently.
 
We are very concerned that we may see a spike in the number of cases. The only way to stop it is to work together as a community to keep each other safe.
