The Town has reported a third Southborough resident’s death attributed to Covid-19.

The information was part of an update “as of” 10:00 pm on Sunday, March 28th. (The previous update was as of the morning of Tuesday, March 23rd.) [Note: So far, recent obituaries for residents haven’t listed Covid-19 as a cause of death. If the family chooses not to make the information public, neither will I.]

The Town’s cumulative total over the course of the pandemic was increased by 10 to 445 cases with 39 cases labeled active.

At least 31 new cases were confirmed in the prior 14 days.

There is a good chance Mass DPH will re-designate Southborough red in the next weekly report due out on Thursday night. It will depending on timing of when tests were taken. (For information from the state’s most recent report, including resident vaccinations, see Friday’s post.)
