Councilmen call on Danbury Mayor to bring back mask mandate

Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito says after meeting with the City's Health Director on the COVID-19 surge from the Omicron variant, they recommend residents get vaccinated and boosted if they have not done so already.  They also recommend wearing masks in large groups during this holiday season.  4th Ward Councilmen Farley Santos and Joe Britton through are calling on Esposito to re-institute a citywide mask requirement until infection and case rates decrease.  Municipalities across Connecticut, including Redding, are bringing back mask requirements.  As of last Thursday, Danbury's positive infection rate was 6-point-4 percent and the average new case rate is up to 28-point-3 per 100-thousand population.  Danbury's vaccination rate is 67 percent.  The two Councilmen say Danbury should lead by example and take proactive steps to stop the spread, working with surrounding communities, to better protect the community.
