Ridgefield officials say the town is flirting very dangerously with the most critical COVID response level and data shows that if residents continue on this trend over the next seven days, Ridgefield will be designated by the State as a red town. Ridgefield is currently averaging four cases per day, occurring in all age groups, and dipped into the red zone three times in the last ten days. The Ridgefield COVID Task Force is closely monitoring the situation. As the holidays approach, First Selectman Rudy Marconi cautioned that the town could see an explosion with a large increase of infections and potential spreaders. Marconi says being in the red can potentially roll Ridgefield back to Phase 2 and possibly Phase 1, however if people are vigilant, there is still a window to alter this trend.
