Ridgefield has lifted the mandatory mask mandate for vaccinated individuals. First Selectman Rudy Marconi says the positive COVID-19 cases remain low at 8.3 per 100,000 residents. That figure is based on the 30 day average, substantially different from the 7 day rolling average. Marconi says they've heard from a lot of people on both sides of the issue. He the decision was supported by a majority of the COVID Task Force which monitors numbers daily and meets weekly to discuss policy changes. State mandates require all unvaccinated people to continue to wear masks indoors. The state and federal governments have specific settings where masks are required by all such as: healthcare facilities, facilities housing vulnerable populations, public and private transit, correctional facilities, schools, and childcare. Marconi urged that anyone who has a comorbidity to continue to wear a mask.
