With the Town updating its figures today and the school administration publishing its weekly Dashboard through Sunday, it’s time for another look a the numbers.

As of this morning, 435 residents have been confirmed as infected with Covid-19, 39 labeled active. 26 cases were confirmed in the prior 14 days, 21 of those in the prior 7-8 days. (That’s back to mid January numbers.) The majority of those over the past week were split between residents in age groups under 20 yrs olds and from 50-59 years old.

NSBORO School District Data:

The Northborough-Southborough schools’ Dashboard for March 15th – 21st shows 9 cases were confirmed in the district, 250 over the course of the pandemic. 

124 students/staff were isolated or quarantined last week.

The pooling program screened two asymptomatic patients as positive. The report also indicates continued growth in student participation*, though still not up to their target of 80+%:

  • Trottier is up from 53% to 55%
  • Woodward is up from 56% to 61%
  • Neary is up from 58% to 60%
  • Finn is up from 43% to 48%
  • ARHS is slightly down from 48% to 47%

District staff participation went back up from 79% to 81%

Below are charts and info from the latest Dashboard and my tracking of their data since the start of the school year.

*The public schools can’t require all students to participate in the screening program. Although, they can (and Algonquin does) require it in order to participate in in-person after school activities like Athletics and clubs.
