The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has elevated Fairfield County from the Medium/Yellow category to High/Orange category in response to its rising level of Covid-19 cases.

As of Jan. 14, the county recorded 888 Covid-19 cases over the previous seven-day period, the second highest in the state – only New Haven County had more reported cases, with 974 over the same period.
