Cape Cod Coronavirus Update: 860 Cases on April 30

There are now 860 confirmed cases of Coronavirus/COVID-19 on Cape Cod according to the state of Massachusetts numbers that are reported daily. With an increase of 18 new cases in one day, it seems that we’ve got a long way to go to beat this beast.
The weekly numbers for each town on the Cape are reported every Wednesday by the state and tend to be more reliable than some of the reports released by the town health departments. In our table below, find numbers for the number of reported cases for each town. For some columns, there are state numbers (unmarked) and town numbers (^) and in some cases, there are numbers for the number of people who have recovered from the virus and the number of deaths.
There are differences in the number of cases that a town reports, and the numbers that show up on the weekly state reports. To make things even more complicated than that, Cape Cod Healthcare numbers are another set of numbers that don’t always align with either set of numbers. See the key below the chart for more information on the symbols used.
