State officials reported 15 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 for New Canaan over the weekend. The cumulative total for the town rose from 416 to 431, according to data released by the Connecticut Department of Public Health Friday and Monday. The town also now has 32 probable cases of coronavirus disease, according to the DPH. The figures come as New Canaan’s first selectman reports that New Canaan last week saw 50 new positive cases. In a town-wide outcall Monday, Kevin Moynihan asked the community to “please do your part in controlling the spread by wearing a mask, washing hands frequently and maintaining social distance.”
“As a reminder all of downtown New Canaan is a required mask zone and with the holiday shopping season underway we appreciate the cooperation of all residents and businesses in complying with the mask zone requirements,” Moynihan said.
