COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Jan. 20, 2023: The CDC has listed six Connecticut Counties—Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, Tolland and Windham Counties—in the High/Orange category as part of its weekly COVID-19 Community Levels update. Fairfield and New London 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.

Hospitalization Statistics

Hospitalization refers to any discharge from a non-federal, short-stay, acute-care, general hospital in Connecticut. Hospitalizations are expressed as numbers of discharges, not as unduplicated patients; a single patient with multiple hospitalizations can thus be counted more than once. Hospital discharges are recorded in the state’s hospital discharge abstract and billing database, which is maintained by the Connecticut Office of Health Strategy.
