Brookfield officials are waiting at least one more week before lifting the mask mandate for vaccinated individuals in indoor public spaces.  The Health Director noted that the town has seen one week where the COVID-19 case rate was below 10 and infection rate below 3-percent.  If this week’s rates stay at the current level or drop further, Brookfield will then drop the mask mandate.  When the requirement was put in place, Brookfield had 18 cases per 100,000 population and a test positivity rate of 4.7 percent.  The report on Thursday from the state Department of Public Health showed Brookfield's case rate has fallen to 8, down from 14.3 the week before, and the positivity rate fell to 1.8 percent, down from 3.6.
