As of last night, the Southborough Board of Health is showing 6 residents in isolation for active cases of Covid-19. The total cases over the course of the pandemic is now 539. That’s 6 cases reported in 7 days and 12 in two weeks.
Last Thursday night’s report from the Mass Department of Public Health listed Southborough as having 8 cases in two weeks with the Average Daily Incidence Rate per 100,000 as 5.9 (lower than prior period) and the % of tests confirmed positive as 1.24% (also lower).* Click here for a reminder of where residents can get tested.

As I’ve previously shared, as of last week, of the 80 cases since April 1st, less than 20% were fully vaccinated residents. Southborough’s Public Health Nurse was emphasizing that vaccinated residents with “breakthrough” infections weren’t experiencing severe symptoms.
As of last week’s vaccination report from MassDPH, 70 more residents were at least partially vaccinated since the prior week. 8,398 Southborough residents received at least one dose by August 10th.
87% of residents old enough to be eligible for shots are fully vaccinated, and another 8% are partially vaxxed. Vaccination curves had flattened out this summer, but there is a slight increase for teen vaccinations. About 99% of teens (ages 12-19) are now at least partially vaccinated and 88% fully vaxxed.**

*The state’s report was based on tests taken in the 14 day period ending on the prior Saturday.
**Population figures are just estimates. I use demographics extrapolated from 2019 census data since the state’s population data was clearly outdated.
