MADISON, CT —In her weekly community message the first of September, First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons was happy to report that there was just one case of coronavirus reported the week prior, though she encouraged residents to stay vigilant as she does in each of her COVID-19 updates.
But this week’s message came with an announcement that the town now has five cases after weeks of no new cases or just one. The four new cases were reported in the last week.
“Madison had four new COVID-19 cases over this past week, leading to a revised total of 5 active cases,” Lyons said Wednesday.
“Similar to trends we are seeing in other communities, the majority of new cases are ages 18 to 25. It is critical that any residents, especially those in this segment of the population, follow state travel quarantine requirements and all guidelines on social gatherings, social distancing and mask wearing, both indoors and outside, as well as practice frequent hand washing,” she reminded.
