This is the Friday March 19, 2021 Litchfield Covid update.
During the past week the COVID numbers in Litchfield continue to creep up from last week for daily active numbers. The 10-day period increased from 17 to 25 active cases. During the last week there were cases reported every day for a total of 16 new cases, last week there were 10 cases reported. The town continues to average 3 new cases per day. The total count currently being monitored in the E911 system has increased from 35 up to 45 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**.
Spring is on our doorstep..Be safe, stay well, keep healthy and enjoy!
