In a breaking news brief this afternoon, WTNH-8 announced that Orange First Selectman Jim Zeoli confirmed that a town resident has tested positive for coronavirus.
He reportedly stated, “The individual is a senior male resident of one of the town’s village communities.”
The report revealed that the man was tested for the virus around a week ago and results came back negative, according to Zeoli, but a recent fall sent him back to the hospital, where he then tested positive.
According to the report, Zeoli said the man, nor his wife had traveled or interacted with others.
This is the town of Orange’s first coronavirus case.
According to WTNH, as of Friday, there are at least 194 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Connecticut, and four people in the state have died from the virus.
Heed the call and stay home. It’s the only way we can get control of this virus.
Disposable plastic gloves if you go out
• Wear plastic gloves if you are going to touch the keys on an ATM or Debit payment machine.
• Don’t touch counter spaces in stores, and if you are pushing a carriage, use disinfectant wipes and/or wear gloves.
• ALWAYS thoroughly wash produce before eating it. (I’d go as far as washing bananas and citrus fruits too, because you don’t know how many people have touched them).
• Remember, when you take money from a cashier, you don’t know where it’s been, plastic gloves may help keep you safe. When you remove them, don’t touch the finger areas. Take them off like a trained healthcare professional, by the wrist area and peel them off, then dispose of them.
