State of Connecticut launches color-coded, weekly COVID-19 alert map with guidance for municipal response

The Connecticut Department of Public Health today launched a new weekly, color-coded COVID-19 alert map for every city and town in the state, identifying the average daily case rate per 100,000 population over the last two weeks. The new weekly alert level is also accompanied by municipal-level guidance on recommended actions for individual residents, institutions such as schools, houses of worship, community organizations, municipal leaders, and local health directors.

The map will be updated every week and is available in the Data Tracker on the state’s coronavirus website (ct.gov/coronavirus).

It is color coded according to the following criteria:

·       Red is for municipalities that have a two week average daily COVID-19 case rate higher than 15 per 100,000 population.

·       Orange is for municipalities with case rates between 10-14 per 100,000 population.

·       Yellow is for municipalities with case rates between 5-9 per 100,000 population.

·       Gray is for municipalities with case rates lower than 5 per 100,000 population.

This week, the following municipalities are in the red category:

·       Canterbury

·       Danbury

·       East Lyme

·       Griswold

·       Hartford

·       Montville

·       New London

·       Norwich

·       Preston

·       Sprague

·       Windham
