Superintendent Dr. Beth Smith sent out a letter to parents saying it will take community cooperation to stop the spread, which she says was mostly caused by community activities.
Shelton is one of many districts in the state to be in the red zone.
Gov. Ned Lamont pulled back the state to Phase Two last week. This put more restrictions on restaurants and event venues.
