On Thursday, November 5th, Governor Lamont provided a Covid update that included Bethel as now being at the highest Covid alert level, called the Red Zone.
Readers are advised to be prepared for possible additional restrictions and monitor the Town's Facebook pages for any related announcements.
The red zone indicates municipalities that have an average daily COVID-19 case rate over the last two weeks of greater than 15 per 100,000 population. The orange zone indicates those that have case rates between 10 to 14 cases per 100,000 population. The yellow zone indicates municipalities that have case rates between 5 and 9 per 100,000 population, and those indicated in gray have case rates lower than five per 100,000 population.
The Department of Public Health will be working with individual cities and towns in the higher-alert levels, including their local health departments, to provide community resources and help make community-level decisions.
