The number of people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 dropped by 23 Tuesday. A total of 3,041 people have now died.
The state wants to run 42,000 COVID-19 tests a week and plans to test all nursing home residents and employees.
Continued decline in the number of hospitalized, but fatalities rose by 79 — bringing the death toll to 2,168.
With the potential for major changes in federal health care policy looming, hospital leaders are watching closely, worried especially that cuts to Medicaid could bring a big financial hit and that a repeal of Obamacare could raise the number of uninsured Connecticut residents.
