NORTHWEST CORNER —  On Monday, Sept. 27, Barkhamsted First Selectman Donald Stein gave an update on the town’s Covid-19 situation.

Stein reported that the town has had 18 new cases of Covid in the past 2 and a half weeks, along with one new Covid related death.

“Many of these cases have occurred in families that have not been vaccinated or in the schools, both at the elementary school and Regional 7,” Stein wrote. “At least one of these cases resulted in a hospitalization. If you have been vaccinated and become infected, the cases tend to be much milder. Only about 63 percent of our residents (over 12 years old) and about 75 percent of the adults over 18 are fully vaccinated.”

Several months after vaccinations have become available, towns in the Northwest Corner are still seeing low vaccination rates.
