Kellogg Provides Residents Weekly Updates During Pandemic

Kellogg is proud of his administration’s efforts in managing the public health emergency. It began when he declared a local civil preparedness emergency in March of 2020, once the first confirmed case of COVID‐19 was reported in Monroe.

“Without question, the number one priority is the health and safety of our community,” Kellogg said. “Priorities shifted very quickly throughout the pandemic, from state mandated lockdowns and social distancing, to testing and contact tracing, and the ongoing massive undertaking regarding mass vaccinations. I have great gratitude for our Emergency Management and Health Departments for assisting at the forefront of this response.”

Throughout the pandemic, First Selectman Kellogg kept residents informed by providing weekly updates on the town’s website, social media, and through the local media. He also regularly used the town’s Code RED system to update residents by phone.

Paid for by Kellogg 21, Jonathan Formichella, Treasurer.  Approved by Ken Kellogg.
