    A Message from Farmington Valley Health District (FVHD):

    Due to the rapid escalation of  COVID-19 cases across the country, in our state and our District and the proportionately small number of individuals that are actually being tested in CT, we need to move to a model that assumes that anyone suffering fever, cough or difficulty breathing has COVID-19.

    Please study this simple chart to help you determine what actions you and your family need to take to protect yourselves and slow the spread of this virus in our communities.

    Remember – We are in this together!

 FVHD Do Your Part Chart- 3.25.20
