Brookfield and the State are seeing another uptick in the numbers of residents testing positive for COVID-19. Brookfield is seeing more cases among youth in town. There have been 32 more cases admitted to Connecticut hospitals over last weekend with considerably more severe disease. Nearly all admissions, 98-percent, are among unvaccinated patients. Of equal concern, according to Brookfield's Health Department, are the few “breakthrough” cases observed in vaccinated persons in Brookfield and around the State. Most, if not all, can be attributed to the more contagious Delta variant.
