Sen. Moore Releases Statement Regarding Cancellation of Bridgeport's St. Patrick's Day Activities and Parade

HARTFORD, CT – Today, state Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) released the following statement regarding the cancellation of Bridgeport's St. Patrick's Day activities and parade in an effort to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The city made the announcement this morning.

"I support the city's decision to cancel St. Patrick's Day activities and the parade in response to the COVID-19 pandemic," said Sen. Moore. "Difficult decisions must be made as we strive to flatten the curve of people testing positive for this virus. These measures will best position our health care facilities and professionals to provide adequate care."

As early as yesterday, the parade and activities were scheduled to be on. On Wednesday, the World Health Organization officially classified COVID-19 as a global pandemic. As of Thursday, there have been three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Connecticut.
