RIDGEFIELD, CT — First Selectman Rudy Marconi is reporting that approximately 165 people were tested Saturday for current evidence of COVID-19, and there were no positives.

It was the third Saturday that the town had offered free drive-thru testing for residents. Of approximately 710 people who have participated in the programs, only six have tested positive.

"It is believed that social distancing and awareness, wearing face coverings and practicing all the guidelines is contributing to keeping the numbers down," according to a news release from the first selectman.

The second phase of Gov. Ned Lamont's plan for reopening the state begins Wednesday, as gyms, hotels, indoor dining and personal services like tattoo parlors all come back online.
