Town and Public Schools Parks and Fields Closed

Due to the COVID-19 Emergency in New Canaan and the State of Connecticut, First Selectman Kevin Moynihan today ordered the closure of all Town and Public School parks and fields through April 30, 2020.

 First Selectman Moynihan signed the order to be effective immediately in light of the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus in New Canaan and surrounding Fairfield County communities and New York State.

 Said Moynihan: “Although New Canaan has had limited spread of the novel coronavirus with 34 residents having now tested positive, we need to do everything possible to try to reinforce the message to our residents that unnecessary social gathering must be discouraged and everyone must practice social distancing.  Only by curtailing the community spread of the virus will we protect our seniors and avoid overburdening our hospitals and first responders as this pandemic proceeds.”
