Statewide Health Alert

On July 30, 2021, CT Department of Public Health issued a statewide health alert due to Connecticut counties being classified as "substantial or high transmission", as defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).   Per guidance from the CDC, while in Connecticut individuals are advised to wear a mask when indoors regardless of their vaccination status.

Masks must be worn in municipal buildings by all unvaccinated individuals over two years of age.  Online, email, dropbox and phone services are available.  

For more information on the State of Connecticut's COVID-19 response, please visit Connecticut COVID-19 response.

Vaccination Information

All Residents aged 5 and up are now eligible for the vaccine.  

Most Connecticut residents are now eligible for booster doses. Booster shots are recommended for everyone 65 and older; everyone who received J&J; and many people 18-64 who received Pfizer or Moderna. Due to increased capacity within the medical centers, we do not expect small local health districts, such as Wilton's to be part of any distribution plan for booster shots.  Click here for more information on booster shot eligibility.
