We are currently reaching out to Lyme officials for more information on these cases.

These cases are in addition to the original previously identified case of a 34-year-old male.

Old Lyme First Selectman Timothy Griswold confirmed to LymeLine by text, Saturday, July 25, that a new case of COVID-19 had been confirmed in Old Lyme. This latest case is a 34-year-old female.

This is the 22nd confirmed COVID-19 case in Old Lyme; in addition, there are two fatalities. Eight of these surviving cases are male and the remaining 14 are female. The two fatalities were a 61-year-old female and an 83-year-old male.

Griswold has previously noted that the 21-year-old female with a confirmed case (#2 in the list immediately above) was tested in Florida, but used an Old Lyme address although she does not live here. Because she gave the Old Lyme address, Griswold said that Ledge Light Health District must report her as an Old Lyme resident.

Lyme’s first and only confirmed case is a 34-year-old male.
