Southbury Residents and Businesses,
The past year has been extremely challenging in many ways. We have made great strides in adapting to the “new normal”. Our success in adapting to the pandemic would not have been possible without town leadership, employees, residents, businesses and visitors following the guidelines and processes developed to mitigate the spread of this virus.
We have reopened the Southbury Town Hall with limited public hours and are working to restore additional town agencies and activities as safely as possible in the coming months. Current COVID-19 testing indicates that we must continue to remain vigilant and responsible to reduce the spread of the virus. The most up to date information for testing centers can be found at 211ct.org.
Phase 1a of the vaccination plan began in mid-December. As of Monday January 11, 2021, 141,055 doses have been administered in the State of Connecticut. Phase 1b is expected to begin on January 18, 2021 for persons 75+. Advance registrations for this phase open on Thursday January 14, 2021. Please visit the State of Connecticut’s website for the details of each phase. Phases (ct.gov).
The Pomperaug District Department of Health has been vaccinating persons in Phase 1a and has started planning clinics for Phase 1b. Additional information about clinics and registration can be found on their website. Pddh.org.
Both the State of Connecticut and Pomperaug Health District vaccination clinics will require advanced registration. No walk-in appointments will be allowed. The Southbury Public Library will have computers available to the public for vaccine information and registrations.
The opening of Phase 1b in the State of Connecticut will make 800,000 to 1 million people eligible for the vaccine. The Phase 1b process will take time to complete given the current weekly vaccine allocation to the State of Connecticut. For scheduling information, please visit www.southbury-ct.org/covid-19-vaccinations. We ask the public to have patience as we work diligently to implement this large-scale operation. The Southbury Emergency Management Team will continue to assist our local health district and State partners with the vaccination plans.
WEAR A MASK, WASH YOUR HANDS, WATCH YOUR DISTANCE & PLEASE BE PATIENT
