Litchfield- COVID Virus Update

Good Morning,

Today, Friday January 22, 2021 Litchfield Covid update. Over the last week the COVID numbers in Litchfield have slightly increased on the daily numbers as well as the active cases in town jumped from 39 to 54 active cases over a ten day period. The weekly average has increased from to an average of 7 with a one day increase of 17 new cases. 

The total count being monitored in the E911 system is 112 cases. This number reflects both other family members who may have been infected as well as those who are infected and stay home without seeing a doctor or being tested. This is a best guess estimate but a number used as a buffer to add protection to police and fire first responders. There continues to be a  small handful of residents who are currently hospitalized and are fighting the virus. Please keep up the good fight, don’t let your guard down and keep taking precautions to keep both yourself and your family safe
