A Ridgefield resident has tested positive for coronavirus and is being treated at Danbury Hospital.
First Selectman Rudy Marconi says it likely won’t be the last case. Health officials are investigating who may have had contact with the patient, who Marconi believes is 88-years-old, but provided no further information on their current condition.
He says health officials expect the virus to peak in the next 45 days, after which cases may begin tapering off. Marconi asked residents to avoid play dates and other gatherings that could risk spreading the disease, but noted that no curfews have been ordered for the town.
An additional 27 Connecticut residents have tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total positive cases reported in the state to 68.
