Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Resources
The Town of Stratford and the Stratford Health Department are closely monitoring the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus, COVID-19. This page contains the latest information and guidance from the Town of Stratford. This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we will work to provide you updates specific to the Town of Stratford as quickly as possible.
Extensive community transmission of COVID-19 is occurring in Fairfield County, including the Town of Stratford. At this time, we ask that everyone practice social distancing and good hand hygiene and do their part to stop the spread of germs. Social distancing involves staying home and minimizing contact with others as much as possible, maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others, avoiding mass gatherings and groups of people, and eliminating physical contact such as handshakes and hugs. If you go to a public setting, such as a pharmacy or grocery store, or cannot maintain a distance of 6 feet between others, please use a cloth face covering. We understand that this drastic change in our culture is difficult, but it is necessary to prevent the overloading of our healthcare system and hospitals and to protect those who are most vulnerable to the virus. Thank you for helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Contact Tracing to Slow the Spread
The Stratford Health Department is actively
performing contact tracing in partnership with the CT Department of Health
using a platform called ContaCT. We are calling residents who have tested
positive for Covid-19 to see how you are doing, provide education about
protecting your friends and family, and ask about anyone you may have come in
contact with to help contain the spread of the virus. If you are willing to
participate, we will use the ContaCT system to identify and reach out via email
and text to you and your contacts. It is important to note that we will not
release your name or the name of your contacts to anyone. Your information is
confidential and treated as a private medical record. Please answer the call
and consider participating in this important effort to help us keep #StratfordSafe.
