The first confirmed positive case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Town of Southbury has been identified. This case is being handled by a local hospital.
While this is disconcerting, it was not unexpected. There is community transmission of coronavirus happening throughout Connecticut and local populations. At this time all citizens should be diligent with their personal hygiene and social distancing. Most importantly, your efforts to limit social exposure will be your best defense against COVID-19 and help flatten the curve of emerging cases.
