LMT Online: Small towns may be on COVID ‘red alert’ with low number of cases

LMT Online: Small towns may be on COVID ‘red alert’ with low number of cases. “In mid-October, Connecticut’s public health department unveiled a new tool devised to help communities keep tabs on the spread of COVID-19: A color-coded map that has levels tied to recommended actions for areas with greater caseload rates. If a city or town moves to a red alert level — indicating it has a rate of 15 or more cases per 100,000 people daily on average over 14 days — for example, the state recommends they consider placing restrictions on business capacity, event capacity and weigh remote learning options for schools.”
