COVID-19 Resources

Message from the First Selectman's Office 

Dear Friends,
We find ourselves in unique and uncertain times as we respond to the myriad challenges brought on by the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Along with these challenges have come unexpected opportunities for our families, businesses and government at all levels. Healthcare Workers and First Responders here in Darien and across the nation are on the front lines of this virus war. They are our heroes along with our local grocers, pharmacists, restaurant owners and staff, as well as non-profit providers who remain open to help us take care of our basic needs. We all play a critical role in helping stop the spread of the virus by following the guidance and orders issued by federal, state and local leaders. You will find a library of resources on this page. This information will be regularly updated.  Stay safe by staying home as much as you are able. We will get through this together!

Due to the increased use of at home rapid testing, we will cease reporting the daily numbers as they no longer accurately reflect the current COVID environment in Darien. We will include as much detail about Darien’s COVID cases as possible in our weekly summaries, to be published each Tuesday.
