Stamford, Bridgeport and Norwalk Return to Phase 2 of COVID-19 Reopening Plan


Three local cities are pulling back from COVID-19 recovery plans as numbers rise in Connecticut.

Stamford, Bridgeport and Norwalk return to the second phase of the reopening.

Another 1,319 cases were reported Thursday, the highest total for a day in weeks. A total of 1,319 tests came back positive out of 21,739, which translates into an infection rate of 6.1%. This is the highest since June.

“It’s a tough decision because I don’t want to see our local businesses affected, but my priority remains the health and safety of our residents,” said Norwalk Mayor Harry Riling. “Our cases are increasing and I am deeply concerned. “
