A Conversation With Public Health Commissioner Deidre Gifford

Jul 28, 2020

It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly five months since Connecticut had it’s first coronavirus diagnosis in the state.

This hour, Connecticut Department of Public Health Acting Commissioner Deidre Gifford joins us to discuss where we are now.

One week ago, the Connecticut Department of Health announced that the Connecticut State Public Health Lab discovered false positive COVID-19 test results. But does the state have enough personal protective equipment and tests to prepare for a second peak?

What questions do you have for Commissioner Gifford? We want to hear from you.
