Greater Danbury area leaders are raising concerns about the increase in COVID-19 cases in the region. Wilton First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice says there were 7 new cases reported Tuesday, with patients ranging in age from 11 to 75 years old. Statewide on Tuesday there were 9 new COVID-related fatalities, including one in Fairfield County. Wilton officials say there is no documented evidence of COVID-19 spreading from person to person within the schools. Positive members of the school community contacted coronavirus outside of the schools. But a large number of students and staff are required to be out of school and in quarantine because of exposure--the count stands at 110. District officials say reducing the need to quarantine is critical if they are to be successful in maximizing in-person education.
