Islands on Candlewood Lake will be closed to the public beginning Saturday after reports of large gatherings and potential risk of spreading the coronavirus.
The decision was made in collaboration between the power company, the Candlewood Lake Authority and the first selectmen in Sherman and New Fairfield, said Len Greene, FirstLight's spokesman.
"This necessary action follows reports of gatherings of large groups of people, sometimes numbering in the hundreds, without proper social distancing and other precautions taken to stop the spread of COVID-19," Greene said.
