Positive COVID-19 reports for Ridgefield remain very low. Town Emergency Manager Dick Aarons says they area within the margin of reporting error. The town is experiencing one or two new positives weekly, mostly relatively young people. Last week, he said Ridgefield had one teenager and one man in his 40s test positive. Statewide, less than 2-percent of those tested were positive. Hospitalizations continue to drop each week as do reported deaths. Health Director Ed Briggs says Ridgefielders seem to be employing common sense and using face coverings when they cannot maintain social distancing. He knows that people may be tired of hearing this advice, but washing hands often, not touching your face, avoiding large crowds and wearing masks when it makes sense are still the best option at this point.
