North Haven remains in the coronavirus red zone. The color coded status for cities and towns is updated each Thursday and represents two weeks of cases. The trigger for red status starts at a rate of 15 cases per 100,000 people per day. The state’s most recent report, which was issued Nov. 12, showed 76 positive cases in North Haven. That works out to an average of 22.9 daily cases per 100,000 people.
The changes that come with the red status include issuing a public health alert, advising high risk people to stay home, limiting trips outside of the home and gatherings with non-family members, canceling public events and limiting community gathering points.
With COVID-19 cases on the rise, Phase 2.1 is in effect in Connecticut. The changes include reducing the capacity of indoor restaurants to 50 percent, with a maximum of eight people per table. Outdoor venues are reduced to 25 percent capacity with social distancing and masks required.
