As of 4 p.m. Saturday there are 5,276 cases of coronavirus in Connecticut and 165 people have died.
There are 1,033 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 and 22,029 people have been tested.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency also approved Connecticut’s request for funding to help pay for sheltering the homeless and domestic violence victims in places like hotels to make sure they can follow social distancing guidelines.
The state and municipalities will receive a 75% reimbursement for costs.
“Ensuring safe housing for survivors of domestic violence in locations that are less congested than what many of the locations that typically offer these services usually provide is critical at this time, and I thank FEMA for approving our request to cover these services,” Gov. Ned Lamont said.
