Brookfield COVID-19 test positivity rate 27th in ranking of Conn. municipalities

Brookfield, like all other Connecticut municipalities, has experienced a COVID-19 infection surge. For the two weeks ending January 1st, Brookfield had 413 cases reported to the Department of Public Health.  The test positivity rate is 21.8 percent making Brookfield 27th in ranking of towns in the State. Fairfield and New Haven Counties have the highest rates. 

Brookfield Health Director Dr Ray Sullivan suspects the numbers will remain high for another week or two before easing off.  He anticipated the spread being up because of gatherings for the holidays where there was close contact transmission. He urged residents to be up to date with shots, practice good hand hygiene, wear a mask, and social distance from others. 

The Brookfield Health Department Vaccine Booster Clinics offering Moderna and J & J are held in Town Hall on Tuesdays from 10am to 1pm and Thursdays 3pm to 6pm.  The clinics will continue through the end of January. No appointment is needed.
