These Towns Have The Most New Cases


CONNECTICUT — Connecticut’s positive coronavirus test rate remained around 1.8 percent Thursday and hospitalizations increased, but not as quickly as they had the past two days.

The state reported 192 positive cases out of 10,372 results for a positive test rate of 1.85 percent. Net hospitalizations increased by three patients up to 107.

There was also a coronavirus outbreak at a Colchester nursing home. There have been 40 cases connected to the Harrington Court Nursing Home, including 32 residents.
