New Fairfield gets overwhelming response to COVID-19 vaccination request

Since last Monday, there have been 28 new, confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Fairfield and there are currently 33 active cases in town.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco says these numbers are higher than any New Fairfield experienced in the spring, and is calling on residents to again help flatten the curve.  She says safety measures not only protect the community, but lessen the strain on health care workers and hospitals.  New Fairfield has had an overwhelming response to a request for contact information from those with underlying health conditions awaiting a vaccine.  While critical to any mass vaccination event, Del Monaco says they did not anticipate the volume of responses, and cannot continue to process information in the same manner.  She asked that residents hold submissions until this week when a streamlined online process will be open to report information.  Anyone who already reported contact information to the Social Services Director, it will be recorded.
