There has been an increase in COVID-19 cases in the Greater Danbury communities. Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospital are limiting visitation out of an abundance of caution, to safeguard patients and staff. Effective today, no visitors are allowed for any inpatients at Danbury Hospital or New Milford Hospital unless extenuating circumstances apply. Sharon Adams, President of the hospitals, says together everyone can reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19 throughout the community. She reminded people to wear a mask in public, limit group gatherings with non-household members, wash hands frequently throughout the day, and stay home if not feeling well. Adams also encouraged people to get tested if you think you have symptoms of COVID-19.
