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.

DPH FLIS Reportable Events

 

DPH Facility Licensing and Investigations Section (FLIS) has developed and piloted a new web based online reportable events system. The statutory requirement to report with a voice phone call has been changed to require Reportable Events be submitted via DPH FLIS Events web based program.

Enrollment

 

Enrollment is a two-step process, so please make sure to complete both the steps to get access to DPH FLIS Event Tracking System.

 

Step 1: Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/eventsfacilityadmin to submit your authorized facility administrators for your facility. Only these administrators will be approved in the system so it's very important for each facility to designate at least two administrators and submit their information.

 

Step 2: Each authorized administrator has to register himself online in the DPH FLIS Events website. Visit https://dphflisevents.ct.gov and click "Register as a Facility Administrator" button and complete the online registration form.

 

Administrators will not be granted access to DPH FLIS Events Tracking System until the above steps are completed.
