Danbury COVID-19 case rates start to decline

Danbury has reported 2,450 COVID-19 cases to the state Department of Public Health in the last two weeks.  The case rate as of January 15th is 206.6, down from 241.8 per 100,000 population last week.  Danbury has a test positivity rate of 34.9 percent, about equal to last week. 

All but one of Connecticut's municipalities remain in the red zone alert level for COVID-19 community spread.  Just Canaan again is not showing 15 or more cases per 100,000 population over the last two weeks.  That town is in the grey with fewer than 5 cases.  

According to data, COVID-19 test positivity rates across the Greater Danbury area remain about the same as the previous week.  The latest data is for the two weeks ending January 15th.  Officials expect the test positivity rate to decline starting in next week's report, in part because of at-home test kits being more widely available and in part because of the sharp fall off of Omicron variant infections. 

The COVID-19 case rates in the Greater Danbury area have started to drop in this week's reporting period, though they are still elevated compared to previous waves of the pandemic.
