Brookfield has been classified in the red zone by the State. There are now 120 towns and cities classified as red or orange. This is partly due to new cases being reported but is also due, in part, to changes in the way the State is tracking cases. First Selectman Steve Dunn says the State is now including antigen cases that came up positive and they are adding some cases to Brookfield’s total with people who work in Brookfield or are known to spend a significant amount of time in Brookfield. Dunn is asking that everyone stay home as much as possible, wear a mask, social distance and wash hands frequently. He added that the only way to stop the spike in cases is to work together as a community to keep each other safe. The Brookfield schools have been reopened and will remain in hybrid mode.
