First Selectman Rudy Marconi reports that he has tested positive for COVID-19. In a message distributed through the Emergency Operations Center, Marconi said he wants to re-assure all Ridgefielders that while he doesn’t feel great, he is doing fine and will work from home as he continues to isolate himself.
“Because I have been extremely careful in following all the directives, this is a reminder of how aggressive this virus is. Please stay home.”
Health Director Ed Briggs confirms that Ridgefield has 107 COVID-19 cases reported with the expectation that these numbers will climb later today. The death toll remains at 12, all associated with a care facility.
Anyone who has gathered in groups over the weekend are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days before entering any public areas in Ridgefield. Briggs says this is the only way everyone can be protected.
