Connecticut coronavirus cases have surged in the 20 to 29 age group this past week, followed by ages 30 to 39.

"The younger age group which has spiked up are a little more casual when it comes to wearing the mask and close-contact socializing," Gov. Ned Lamont said.

"The older you are the more cautious you are," Lamont continued.

The percentage of positive COVID-19 tests continues to stay below one percent.

Nine new deaths have been reported since yesterday, bringing the death toll to 4,389.
