[ARCHIVED] Weekly Message from the First Selectwoman

1st Selectwoman Message Happy New Year

Good evening, this is First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons with today’s weekly update.

Madison currently has 30 active COVID-19 cases in our community, gratefully with no residents hospitalized and no new fatalities. As of yesterday, Madison Public Schools had 17 active cases, including students and staff. Despite a continued decline across the state, we are starting to see some cases of the new B117

COVID -19 variant in our area.  This highlights a continued need to follow all necessary precautions to stop the spread of this disease, including wearing a mask, avoiding gatherings with those outside our household, washing our hands frequently, and getting tested when showing symptoms or coming in to close contact with an infected person.  

I am grateful to announce that Madison has vaccinated close to 80% of its population 75 years and older.  If you are a Madison resident in this age group, or know of a homebound senior, and have not scheduled an appointment for your first dose of the vaccine, please contact the Senior Center at (203) 245-5627 for assistance.  Starting this week, people between the ages of 65 and 74 can now also register to get their vaccines.  The Town will continue to offer weekly clinics on Thursdays at the Town Campus Gym (on an appointment only basis) while supplies are available for all eligible populations.   Enrollment for next week’s clinic will open this Monday at noon through the CDC’s Vaccine Management System (VAMS).  Residents can also make appointments to get vaccinated at some area pharmacies, several major hospitals, and by calling the state COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Assist line at (877) 918-2224.  For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 vaccination locations in Connecticut, please visit ct.gov/covidvaccine.

Next Thursday, February 18th at 7 p.m., the Town will be holding its first virtual Town meeting where voting will occur on three questions.  To find out more about this meeting and how to participate, please visit madisonct.org

Stay safe and healthy Madison.
