TOWN UPDATE: Ridgefield, CT -January 18, 2021

Vaccine Updates:

  • Advanced registration for ages 75 and older is available on the town website by going to ridgefieldct.org and clicking on the red COVID banner.  Fill out the survey button and the state will notify you if you are qualified.  Once notified, you will be asked to fill out information for the VAMS portal.  When you are able to log into that, you will be notified of available times and locations for the vaccine.  Be sure to save all your log in information and be sure to keep all communications from the VAMS system.
  • For those who wish to sign up by phone, call 877-918-2224.
  • Phase 1a is currently still underway.   Phase 1b is expected to roll out next week, however, some people 75 and older have been able to receive the vaccination by registering through the survey. 
  • More information will follow tomorrow, January 14, 2021 after the Governor’s late afternoon announcements.
  • Ridgefield had a significant uptick in cases this week so all residents are urged to be extra vigilant and to follow CDC protocols of wearing a mask, distancing and sanitizing.  Also, please avoid groups. 
  • Governor Lamont urges all residents to beware of scammers.  Vaccinations are free.  No-one will ask for:
    • Payment (cash or check)
    • Credit card or bank information
    • Social Security numbers, Passport information or other personal information (unless it is medical insurance related.)

TESTING UPDATE:

  • Testing is open at the Yanity Gym, and we appreciate your patience as this new operation continues ramping up to full capacity.  The link on this page above takes you to the Docs website and will allow you to make an appointment on a first-come, first-served basis. Currently, test times are posted 72 hours in advance.   If there are no time slots shown, then that means there are no more tests available on that day.
  • Below you will find a direct link for the Healow portal.  Patients can access their account and results by using the cell phone option of entering their username and date of birth.  A code will be sent to your cell for verification.  For those who used their landlines for contact information, enter your username and password.   The rapid test results should be posted later that day. The PCR test will take a few days. https://mycw83.ecwcloud.com/portal11044/jsp/100mp/login_otp.jsp
  • Other testing locations in the town and area also continue to administer tests and you can use this link to find one that is convenient for you if the Yanity Gym site is full.

*Unlike the State of CT which averages data on a two-week basis, the Ridgefield analysis reflects a one-week average.  The daily new case rates are expressed per 100,000 residents.  Ridgefield also includes congregate settings such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities and the State does not.  Ridgefield's one week averaging allows for a quicker Town response to changes in COVID-19 case rates.
