Since Friday, there have been 12 new, confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Fairfield. The town's Health Director has been working closely with the State, Selectman Khris Hall, and a working group of town staff and medical professionals to ensure that New Fairfield is prepared to vaccinate residents as they become eligible in Phases 1B and 1C. More details are being worked out about how to register and set up an appointment for vaccination as the state works through the sets of people to be included in each phase. The CDC recommends Phase 1B of vaccinations include adults over the age of 75, first responders, teachers/school staff, child care providers, food service workers, correctional workers, public transit employees, postal employees, grocery workers and manufacturing workers. Phase 1C will begin in early spring and will include adults over 65, individuals with underlying health conditions and remaining essential workers.
