COVID-19 Code Red
November 16, 2021
Good evening, this is your new First Selectman, Monica McNally, with a COVID-19 update.
We have seen a recent uptick in COVID cases in the community and in our schools, leading to an increase in quarantined students. Dr. Addley, Board of Education health professionals, the Town Health Director and I have issued a joint press release regarding the current COVID environment in town. The detailed press release is available on the homepage of the Town website, under News.First Selectman's Code Red Message 11-16-21
There has been a very positive response to the student Pfizer vaccine clinics. Many students received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine last Saturday at Town Hall, and more are scheduled to receive their first dose this coming Saturday, November 20th. Second doses will be administered in December. Please keep in mind that child vaccines are also available through local providers.
Adult booster and seasonal flu vaccine clinics are scheduled on Tuesday, November 23rd from 9:30am to 12:30pm and Tuesday, November 30th from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. To register for a booster shot, use the VAMS portal. Flu shots are provided to walk-ins.
I would like to thank you for the confidence you have placed in me by electing me your First Selectman. As I work with you to keep our community safe, I will send Code Red updates as information warrants. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me in the Selectmen’s Office.
Please be safe this Thanksgiving, as you enjoy time with family and friends.
