This is the Friday March 12, 2021 Litchfield Covid update.
During the past week the COVID numbers in Litchfield have decreased from last week but continue to fluctuate weekly for daily active numbers. The 10-day period active cases decreased from 19 to 17 active cases. During the last week there were 10 new cases with three days reporting no new cases. Last week there were 7 cases marking a slight increase for this week. The town average is 3 new cases for each day with reportable numbers. The total count currently being monitored in the E911 system slightly increased from 29 up to 35 cases. **This number reflects both other family members of a known positive covid tested person 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 which keeps previous people with multiple family members on the E911 list for a slightly longer period of time to provide a small buffer to add protection to police and fire first responders**.
Be safe, stay well, keep healthy and enjoy this warm spring weather!
