First Selectwoman's Community Update

First Selectwomans community update

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

COVID Update

I am disappointed to report that we have seen our cases of COVID-19 grow over these last two weeks. Madison currently has 21 active COVID-19 cases in our community with, thankfully, no residents hospitalized; current cases include mostly unvaccinated residents and some minors.  Although Madison has very high vaccination rates across our demographics, we still have many eligible residents who have not been vaccinated. 

As the school year begins and extracurricular activities start, please consider getting your age eligible-child vaccinated.  Children under the age of 12 are not able to be vaccinated at this time so we encourage every resident to protect our most vulnerable populations by getting vaccinated. If you or anyone you know are having difficulties getting access to the vaccine, please contact our Health Department at (203) 245-5681 for assistance in finding a vaccine clinic. We also encourage residents to wear a mask in any indoor public space throughout Madison, including local retail stores, restaurants, churches, and other indoor settings. The Town is actively monitoring cases in our community and will continue to refine and adjust policies to adapt to changing circumstances.  

New School Year

This Monday, August 30th, marks the start of the school year for children enrolled in Madison Public Schools. I want to wish our teachers, administrators, parents, and most importantly our students, a healthy and successful school re-opening for this academic year.  We are fortunate that we will be able to continue to offer in-person schooling for all grade levels five days a week.  While school buses will be running daily on their regular routes starting Monday, many parents may choose to continue to drive their kids to and from school.  This is likely to lead to an extended period of high traffic volume around all five schools, so avoid travel in these areas when possible.

I also want to remind residents that this week is the last week of our summer season at our Town beaches, and some summer staff have already begun to return to school.  After Labor Day weekend, we will no longer be staffing gate guards and life guards at any of our beaches and sporting activities will ramp up at the Surf Club and other athletic fields around town. 

Finally, I want to give a heartfelt thank you to our Town’s Emergency Operations team, all our public safety employees and volunteers, and the many dedicated Town staff who helped manage our response to Hurricane Henri.  Although we prepared for the worst, I am grateful that we were spared what could have been a very catastrophic storm for our community.  

Enjoy these remaining days of summer and let’s all work together to keep our Town safe and healthy.
