Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve rapidly and as a result, information and guidance change frequently. Ledge Light Health District continues to work with our partners throughout the region and state to monitor data, work to prevent disease transmission, and respond to new information. While we cannot predict the impact of COVID-19 with great certainty, we can assure you that there are many trusted and experienced community partners in our public health system working together to protect our communities. We are grateful for these partnerships.

Key Messages

  • There are many respiratory illnesses circulating in Connecticut, such as the flu and the common cold. Having respiratory symptoms DOES NOT mean you have COVID-19.
  • People are at higher risk for COVID-19 if they have symptoms of the virus (cough, fever, shortness of breath) AND if they were in contact with a positive case of COVID-19 or have traveled to locations with community transmission.
  • Someone is considered a contact if they have had direct, face-to-face contact with a person with COVID-19.
