    Thanks for keeping us updated. Can you include how many Old Lyme residents have been tested. With travel restrictions continually being created there are increasing numbers of “healthy ” people being tested. Are these positive cases out of thousands of residents having been tested? It would be good to put it in perspective.

    The State of CT publishes that and much more at https://data.ct.gov/stories/s/COVID-19-data/wa3g-tfvc/
