CT Sees 2,600+ Coronavirus Cases Over Weekend

CONNECTICUT — Connecticut reported another 2,651 positive coronavirus tests over the weekend along with a 3.4 percent positive test rate.

“There’s no question about it, the trend line is continuing to trend up,” Gov. Ned Lamont said during a Monday news conference.

The trend of more cases, a higher positive test rate and increased hospitalizations caused Lamont to roll back some guidelines to phase 2 levels in a new phase dubbed “2.1.”

Coronavirus hospitalizations increased by 11 patients up to a net of 340. Hospitalizations are now at early June levels.

Another 11 coronavirus-related deaths were reported over the weekend for a total of 4,627 during the pandemic to date.
