Danbury's COVID-19 test positivity rate has ticked up slightly since the last reporting period and is at 2-percent.   78 cases have been reported to the state between October 10th and 23rd.  That's 6.6 cases per 100,000 population. 

Color on the state's COVID-19 community spread map is coming back into the Greater Danbury area.  While Newtown dropped down from Orange, the 2nd highest level, to Yellow, other towns in the region are seeing a rise in cases. 

Sherman has moved up into the Red Zone when it comes to the state Department of Public Health's levels of COVID-19 community spread.  It's based on cases per 100,000 population, so with 11 COVID-19 cases in the last two weeks in the small town, that is equivalent to 21.6 cases per 100,000 population. 

Redding is in the orange zone for a second week in a row for having between 10 and 14 cases per 100,000.  Brookfield and New Fairfield also moved up to Orange from Yellow.  New Milford experienced a slight drop and is out of the Red Zone, and down to Orange.  Other greater Danbury area towns are in the yellow zone with 5 to 9 cases per 100,000 population.
