Killingworth Copes: Oct. 13, 2020

By Cathy Iino, Killingworth First Selectman.

Hello, Killingworth–
The official count of COVID cases in Killingworth stands at 23–still with no evidence of transmission within our town. In addition, two individuals associated with the Haddam-Killingworth Middle/Intermediate School have contracted the coronavirus. Fortunately, our health department has determined that those individuals did not expose others in the school to the virus, and no change in RSD17 procedures is needed. We wish the individuals a smooth and speedy recovery.
Connecticut’s “positivity rate” is still one of the lowest in the country, 1.4 percent. But that rate is rising. Recently, New London County, directly to the east of us, has seen particularly high spikes. For the sake of the whole community, please continue to wear masks, keep your distance from those you don’t live with, and wash your hands frequently.
Flu shots are more important than ever. Some local pharmacies have been running low, so be sure to check with them before you go. (Our own Killingworth Family Pharmacy has a waiting list; their phone number is 860-452-4275.) Another option is to sign up for a flu shot clinic offered by the Connecticut River Area Health District. Fill out the on-line form and they will schedule an appointment.
TD Bank. We have been informed that the Killingworth TD Bank branch will be closed for a few days because of staffing issues. The North Branford branch at 1289 Foxon Road is open normal hours; their phone number is 203-484-0415.

 

Stay safe and carry on–
Cathy
