The Town of Enfield Administration is urging residents to use precautions over the holidays as the infection rates continue to increase. “With holidays approaching, we know that there will be a continued spike,” stated Mayor Bob Cressotti. “We are also learning that the Omicron variant is a highly contagious strain, and that the capacity of our area hospitals is stretched at this time, which will have an impact on the ability of the health care profession to care for non-Covid related illnesses and medical situations.”

 

The Enfield Senior Center will host two free vaccination clinics on Friday January 7 and January 28 from 9 am-1 pm for those wishing to get their first shot or booster shot. “For those receiving their first shot on the 7th, they may then return on the 28th to receive their second shot,” said Mary Keller, Senior Center Manager. The clinics will be first-come, first-serve with all three vaccines available. For more information, residents may call the Center at 860-763-7425. 

 

The majority of Connecticut cities and towns are currently in the red zone. In Enfield, we continue to see positive cases.

Health District Director Patrice Sulik urges everyone to be extremely cautious during the holiday season.  “Everyone wants to spend time with family and friends during the holiday season, but if you have symptoms, please excuse yourself from these gatherings and follow CDC holiday guidance.   Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones from getting COVID”.

 

The Town Council and Town administration will be working with the area’s private medical providers and the North Central District Health Department to create additional opportunities for residents to be tested, vaccinated and boosted over the next few weeks.
