A candlelight vigil is planned tonight outside Danbury Hospital to honor pandemic victims and sacrifices made during the ongoing public health emergency. AFT Connecticut, a union which includes nurses, is holding the vigil. They will also be collecting nonperishable food items outside of the hospital, which will be donated to local food pantries for their continued support of families experiencing ongoing hardships related to the pandemic. The first COVID-19 patient in Connecticut was a Wilton resident who sought medical care at Danbury Hospital. Tonight's vigil and food drive is at 6pm.
