Coronavirus Update 4-14-2020

As we continue to try and keep residents updated regarding COVID-19 with verified information, we want to emphasize the lag time in reporting that was mentioned in our last update. Confirmed cases continue to remain fluid and can vary by source which requires further reconciliation.

As confirmed cases of COVID-19 have made their way into our community, it has been our desire to apprise residents quickly. In our last update, we stated, “the Town will not report on each confirmed case going forward.”

Suffield Confirms First Loss to COVID-19

We are deeply saddened to report that the first of our residents has died from COVID-19 as confirmed by The Suffield House. Though the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CTDPH) has not made the official verification yet, in the interest of timeliness, we felt it appropriate to inform the public.


I am saddened to report that the North Central District Health Department confirmed this evening an additional coronavirus case in Suffield.  At this time, that is the extent of the information available.  While this news is not unexpected, I share the community’s concern for one of our neighbors.  I wish I was not ending your day with this news.  Please continue to practice social distancing, take care of each other, and stay well.
