There are now 42 confirmed coronavirus cases in Ridgefield, with 8 new cases in the last 24 hours. Another Ridgefield resident has died, bringing the coronavirus-related fatality rate for the town up to three. This latest loss was not an individual from the assisted living facility, which still has 17 active coronavirus cases.
Ridgefield officials say because residents are not doing their part to social distance and stay home, the town has deployed personnel to tape, chain and post signs at all town fields and courts. On Wednesday, kids were seen playing Lacrosse at Tiger Hollow. Ridgefield officials pleaded with them to stop and think about the lives being endangered before leaving the house.
Neighborhoods with recreation areas are also being asked to make sure those courts and fields are closed.
