Health officials are urging residents to remain vigilant amid a spike of COVID-19 cases related to the new variants.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health says 90% of the state's residents live in a red zone on the map, which means there are at least 15 infections per 100,000 people.
Health officials warn that about 40% of the new cases in the state are the coronavirus variant first detected in the U.K. Doctors say that the vaccine protects against the variants.
The highest amount of cases in Connecticut are seen among 20- to 29-year-olds - a less vaccinated population.
Health officials are reminding the public to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and when you are eligible for the vaccine - go get it.
