Gov. Ned Lamont and public health officials urged Connecticut residents Monday to stay up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations as cases and hospitalizations related to the virus continue to climb amid spread of infectious new subvariants.
As of Monday, the positivity rate over the past seven days in West Hartford was 10.8%, with 60 cases reported over the past week – a number that does not represent the results of at-home tests.
