9-percent of New Milford's total population has received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Some 60-percent of New Milford residents 75 and older have gotten the first shot. As the State continues to receive limited amounts of the vaccine, New Milford continues to ask for doses to be allocated in Litchfield County. Health Director Lisa Morrissey noted that additional New Milford Clinics will be opened through a partnership with Nuvance/New Milford Hospital. New Milford Health Director Mike Crespan has officially retired from the position after more than 3 decades. He served the town for 33 years. Mayor Pete Bass thanked Crespan for everything he's done for the Town, especially this past year with COVID-19.
