COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Jan. 27, 2023: The CDC has listed three Connecticut Counties—Litchfield, Middlesex and New Haven Counties—in the High/Orange category as part of its weekly COVID-19 Community Levels update. Fairfield, Hartford, New London, Tolland and Windham Counties are listed in the Medium/Yellow category.  Because all eight Connecticut counties are either in the High or Medium categories, the Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Map for updates.


Please visit covidtests.gov to request four free COVID-19 self-test kits from the Federal Government. Find a location that has a supply of COVID-19 therapeutics as part of the Test to Treat initiative here. The complete DPH COVID-19 toolbox is located at ct.gov/coronavirus.

Mpox Vaccination

Getting vaccinated after a recent exposure may reduce the chance of you getting mpox, and it can reduce symptoms if you do get it. CDC does not recommend widespread vaccination against mpox at this time. However, vaccination may be recommended for some people who:

  • Are close personal contacts of people with mpox
  • May have been exposed to the virus
  • May have increased risk of being exposed to the virus 

Immunizations records in CT WiZ now include mpox vaccine for individuals who received their vaccine in Connecticut. Instructions on accessing immunizations records can be found here.

Mpox Vaccine FAQ

 

ELIGIBILITY

You are eligible to be vaccinated if you are residing, attending school, or stationed in Connecticut and meet one of the following:

  • You had close personal contact in the past 14 days with a positive case of mpox (this may include sexual partners, household contacts, and healthcare workers); OR
  • You meet at least one of the following criteria:
    • Had a sexual partner in the past 6 months who was diagnosed with mpox; OR
    • Had multiple sexual partners in the past 6 months in a jurisdiction (e.g., city/state/country) with known mpox; OR
    • Have a current partner who has multiple sexual partners in a jurisdiction with known mpox; OR
    • Anticipate having a new sexual partner or partners in the next 6 months in a jurisdiction with known mpox.

If you are eligible to be vaccinated, you should especially consider getting vaccinated if:

  • Your partners are showing symptoms of mpox, such as a rash or sores.
  • You met recent partners through online applications or social media platforms (such as Grindr, Tinder or Scruff), or at clubs, raves, sex parties, saunas or other large gatherings.
  • You have a condition that may increase your risk for severe disease if infected with mpox virus, such as HIV or another condition that weakens your immune system, or you have a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema.

Vaccination is not recommended for individuals with current mpox illness. Persons with mpox symptoms who have had close personal contact with someone with known mpox in the past 14 days should contact their health care provider.
