The governor's office reported 802 new coronavirus cases in Connecticut Friday. The positivity rate is 2.4 percent, the highest since early May, and 187 patients statewide are currently hospitalized with the virus. The Connecticut Department of Public Health also launched a weekly color-coded COVID-19 alert map showing the conditions in individual towns. The map has four categories -- Gray, Yellow, Orange and Red with Red having the highest case rate. In addition to the map, the DPH also submitted its draft plan for mass coronavirus vaccination to the CDC.

With 20 new coronavirus cases as of this week, Trinity College is one of the first colleges in the state to switch to full remote learning. The Hartford Courant reports that students who have tested positive are in isolation as of Wednesday, and more than 50 other students are being quarantined. All classes will be online at least through Monday, and athletic facilities will be closed. But campus testing centers will continue running as usual.
