At this point, it would be easier to tell you what Connecticut communities aren’t in the red for the week of Nov. 19.

There are now 157 out of 179 Connecticut cities and towns that have turned “red” due to COVID-19 incident rates.

Last week, Nov. 12, there were 100 red communities.

Red communities are so-called due to the state’s color-coded map of average daily COVID-19 cases. Red communities are reporting 4-15 or more cases per 100,000 residents.

Red communities are so-called due to the state’s color-coded map of average daily COVID-19 cases. Red communities are reporting 4-15 or more cases per 100,000 residents.

The 22 communities that aren’t in the red are Sharon (2.6), Cornwall (10.4), Warren (0), Canaan (0), Norfolk (0), Colebrook (10.2), Hartland (6.7), Bridgewater (17.4), Lyme (6.1), Scotland (8.5), Eastford (8), Union (0), Winchester (14.1), Barkhamsted (13.8), Granby (10), Canton (11.8), Simsbury (11.7), Avon (14), Ellington (14.9), Stafford (10.2), Bolton (14.6), Columbia (14.6).

Some of those communities are “orange,” meaning that there are 10-14 cases per 100,000 people there. Orange communities are Winchester, Barkhamsted, Granby, Canton, Simsbury, Avon, Ellington, Stafford, Bolton, and Columbia.

In Connecticut, like many other states, COVID-19 is surging due to decreased economic restrictions, the return of students to classrooms in September, and what some refer to as people dropping their vigilance. The state has instituted a 9:30 p.m. curfew and rolled back some of the economy’s reopening to tamp down on the spread of the virus.

There are no cities or towns that came off the red list from last week, Nov. 12.

The following is a list of red communities in Connecticut as of Thursday, Nov. 19, and their corresponding average daily rates.
