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.

As the primacy agency to enforce the Safe Drinking Water Act in Connecticut, CT DPH is required to develop a capacity development strategy with the goal of helping public water systems in CT create and maintain acceptable levels of technical, managerial and financial (TMF) capacity. Further, pursuant to the American Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018, the states are required to update their strategies to include how the state will encourage the development of asset management plans that include best practices, training, technical assistance and other activities to help with implementation of those plans.

A presentation on the draft strategy will be held on Thursday October 13th in place of the normal monthly DWS webinar for PWS, certified operators and environmental laboratories.
