NORTH HAVEN — Police are warning residents to follow recommended safety protocols after nine town residents tested positive for COVID-19.
“North Haven is not immune to this pandemic, so while we may see increased cases in the weeks to come, we continue to encourage our community to practice social distancing, frequent hand washing, good personal hygiene, and staying informed through legitimate sources,” according to a post on the police department Facebook page.
Police are asking residents not to discard loose medical waste into the trash, including gloves, gowns and N-95 masks. The public works department has seen an increase in these types of items being thrown in the trash and are asking residents to bag them before discarding.
Residents with complaints about non-compliance with the governor’s executive order to “Stay home, stay safe” are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org, and not call 911. Residents should include their name, phone number, the name of the business or person involved and a description of why they believe there is non-compliance with the executive order. All complaints will be reviewed and officers will follow up. The residents may not receive a call back unless additional information is needed.
