Coronavirus Cases in Wilton Now at 255; Vanderslice Says Rates are Rising

As of the last update to Connecticut COVID-19 case numbers (Sept. 10), Wilton had one new case number, bringing the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic to 255.

Net for September, Wilton has seen seven new cases since the start of the month.

In her update on Friday, Sept. 11 to residents, First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice warned about another indicator’s rising trend:  in July, 999 unique Wilton residents were tested; of those, eight unique residents were positive, recording a positive rate of .80%. During the first 10 days of September, 268 unique Wilton residents were tested; of those, seven unique residents were positive, reflecting a positive rate of 2.6%.

“Although 2.6% is a relatively low rate, the tripling of the rate is a reminder that we must continue to be vigilant,” Vanderslice wrote.

On a more positive note, she said that one population that had been hard hit in the early part of the pandemic was faring better. According to CT Department of Public Health data released Thursday, Sept. 10, no individuals residing in Wilton nursing homes or assisted living facilities tested positive between mid-July to Sept. 8.
