The latest data compiled for the Ridgefield COVID Task force confirms what experts have been saying all along. Relative to vaccinated people, unvaccinated people are 4.6 times more likely to get COVID, 11 times more likely to become hospitalized and 33 times more likely to die from it.
Masks are currently not mandated for the vaccinated except in certain situations, however, First Selectman Rudy Marconi asks that residents opt in when indoors in settings outside the home. For supporting data, please visit the town website at www.ridgefieldct.org.
“Please also respect the fact that many local businesses require masks for everyone, vaccinated or not. This is the time to support their efforts to protect their employees and customers,” says Marconi.
