COVID-19 Update


It’s been more than one year since the first confirmed COVID-19 case among a Westbrook resident, and since the beginning, the Town of Westbrook has recorded over 400 total confirmed cases. The Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH) has updated the Town of Westbrook’s Average Daily Rate of COVID-19 Cases per 100,000 population to 18.6, which is continuing our gradual decrease in case rates.

 

As we continue to see progress in our battle against COVID-19 in Westbrook, through mitigation measures and vaccinations, it’s imperative that we remain committed to protecting ourselves and our community by:

 

--Wearing a mask in public settings

--Maintaining a physical distance from individuals outside of our households

--Practicing good hand hygiene

--Getting vaccinated when you’re eligible

--Refraining from non-essential travel outside of Connecticut and adhering to the State of Connecticut Travel Advisory: https://portal.ct.gov/coronavirus/travel

--Staying home if feeling ill, testing positive, or waiting for COVID-19 test results
