Greenwich Hospital reports that as of noon today, Monday, April 6, 2020, there were 107 COVID-19 positive patients being treated in several different Hospital units. So far, 108 patients have been discharged from the Hospital and continue their recuperation at home. To date, 2,372 people have been tested at the Hospital’s outpatient tent with 888 testing positive. All of these numbers reflect patients who live in Greenwich as well as from other municipalities in Connecticut and Westchester County.


“As the number of positive cases grows, it is imperative for everyone to continue social distancing, wear facial coverings when outdoors and continue all of the other safe practices, including frequent handwashing, using hand sanitizer,” Mr. Camillo said. “This is especially important as Fairfield County continues to be the epicenter of new diagnoses every day.”


Filing for unemployment

If you have already filed an unemployment claim: It is extremely important that you check your email (including your Junk or Spam folders) daily for updated messages from the Connecticut Labor Department. Messages may include next steps, or you may be asked to log back onto your claim to help us speed up processing times.


If you have not yet filed your unemployment claim: Visit http://www.filectui.com, and first click on the message located above the large blue button that says: “For quicker payment of unemployment benefits, please follow these instructions.” This link provides a guide that asks you to file your claim as a “Temporary Shutdown.” To speed up the processing of your claim, it is important that you read the guide instructions before you file, and follow the instructions exactly as provided.
