A Danbury courthouse clerk's office employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The courthouse was immediately closed for comprehensive cleaning and sanitization. A review of the business flow into the Danbury court over the last three days was conducted. In light of the very low foot traffic, Chief Court Administrator Patrick Carroll decided to keep the courthouse closed until further notice. All cases that would otherwise be handled in the Danbury courthouse were transferred to the Waterbury Courthouse, until further notice. Danbury States Attorney Stephen Sedensky has asked the Waterbury State’s Attorney to handle the Danbury cases temporarily transferred there. That decision will be reevaluated at the end of the week.
