Ridgefield officials are urging people to continue to stay home unless necessary. People who are venturing out are being reminded of the proper way to remove and discard of the gloves. Emergency Management Director Dick Aarons says gloves should not be tossed in parking lots or on sidewalks, but should be discarded in trash bins or taken home to discard. Ridgefield Responds is now accepting applications for rental assistance from Ridgefield residents who are experiencing immediate financial difficulties as a result of COVID-19. Applications and criteria can be found on the town website. The 501C-3 is also accepting more donations for the rental assistance program. All donations are tax deductible and can be sent to: Friends of Ridgefield-Ridgefield Responds at 400 Main Street.
