Covid Update

March 14 - tracking Covid in Southborough

Above: For the second week, there was an uptick in the number of new/probable cases in Town, but numbers are still far below the January peak. (click image above to enlarge)

The Northborough Southborough Public Schools issued an updated Weekly Dashboard. So it’s a good time for an update.

The past couple of weeks have shown no surge in the schools since the mask mandates were dropped following February break. (It’s worth noting that the lowest week of cases for the Dashboard ending February 23 overlapped vacation week. No pooled screening was conducted and for half the week students/staff didn’t have to report in sick to stay home from school.)

The NSBORO Schools’ latest Dashboard shows there were 9 cases among students and staff for the period ending Wednesday, March 16th. Three were from Algonquin and one from Southborough K-8. The prior week there were 10 cases across all three districts.

Over the past week, two cases were identified through the pooled screening program and one through testing symptomatic students/staff. (See my updated graphs below based on the Dashboard data.)

As of Monday’s weekly update by the Town, there were 27 cases new/probable cases reported in Southborough in one week. That’s up for the second week over the end of February, but still a far cry from the January surge.

March 14 - Confirmed per Day in Southborough over 14 daysThe average Daily Case Count over two weeks was 3.5. That’s a little bit up from recent weeks and from the state report issued on March 10th. (Their count is based on results from tests taken through March 5th.) The report showed that the percent of tests coming back positive was down again for that period.

Below are more of my latest graphs based on the Town data and the State report.
