Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi declared a local State of Emergency for the Town.
This action gives the greatest possible operational flexibility to departments involved in COVID-19 response, recovery and mitigation. The declaration does not indicate a major change in the local situation, but rather parallels the declaration made by Governor Lamont and facilitates dealings with state and federal authorities as necessary.
