For another straight day, Connecticut's COVID-19 test positivity rate remained at or above 1% marking what Governor Ned Lamont on Thursday called "a trend." The latest data from the state Department of Public Health released Friday afternoon shows the state's test positivity rate at 1% while active coronavirus hospitalizations remain in the upper 70s.

Of the 13,865 COVID-19 tests administered in the state since Thursday, 141 came back positive. The state's test positivity rate has been at or above 1% since September 9 after hovering below that milestone for much of the summer.
