The Town of Lyme is deeply saddened to report that our community has experienced the first COVID-related death of a Town resident.  In the many months since the pandemic began, while our Town has experienced more than 130 cases of COVID, we had not lost a single soul – until now.  We would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the deceased.  Our hearts go out to you.

We urge all residents to continue to exercise caution where COVID is concerned – to get vaccinated and to get their booster shot whenever eligible. The winter may well result in an increase in cases again as we spend more time indoors and observe holiday celebrations.  At some point, we pray that the pandemic will end. Until then, please take care of yourselves, your families, friends and neighbors. Today is a sad day in Lyme.
