Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi has ordered partial activation of the Ridgefield Emergency Operations Center to function as a multiagency coordination center to support the town’s response to Covid-19. Town and school officials have met several times over the last two weeks to assure continuity of operations of community services. Ridgefield Health Director Ed Briggs is the Covid-19 incident commander. Participants in the Policy Group include department heads from all municipal agencies and public/private schools. The Ridgefield EOC provides a path for rapid response to the Covid-19 challenge and assures, to the extent possible, the best use of local resources.
