Connecticut's COVID Positivity Rate Remains High
The governor's office reported 802 new coronavirus cases in Connecticut Friday. The positivity rate is 2.4 percent, the highest since early May, and 187 patients statewide are currently hospitalized with the virus. The Connecticut Department of Public Health also launched a weekly color-coded COVID-19 alert map showing the conditions in individual towns. The map has four categories -- Gray, Yellow, Orange and Red with Red having the highest case rate. In addition to the map, the DPH also submitted its draft plan for mass coronavirus vaccination to the CDC.
