For the first time since mid-May, Connecticut’s COVID daily positivity rate has topped 2 percent, but Gov. Ned Lamont said he does not believe new restrictions or mandates are needed to address the rising infections.
The state reported Tuesday that 218 people tested positive for COVID-19 out of 8,055 new tests for a positivity rate of 2.71 percent, which is the highest since May 11. The seven-day positivity rate climbed to 1.54 percent, the highest since May 12.
