COVID-19 cases in Redding continue to rise sharply

The COVID-19 cases in Redding have continued to rise sharply. This is in step with the case numbers throughout most of Connecticut and the country. Redding’s positive case numbers have risen from 9 in September, to 16 cases in October, and now 42 in November.  The total number of cases is 161. In Connecticut the age group of 20-29 years old has the most positive cases. Results for the PCR test usually takes 2-5 days. While waiting for test results, Redding Health officials ask residents to stay home to prevent possible spread. The antigen test provides quicker results, but it’s less sensitive and can come back with false negatives and positives. The antigen test works best on people with symptoms to confirm if it's COVID-19. When someone tests positive with an antigen test and has no symptoms, they will be asked to get a PCR test.
