4/2/2020
The Town of Falmouth has 57 confirmed COVID-19 cases. This significant increase in positive cases from that reported yesterday is in part attributable to including multiple individuals who reside in the same household. Proper isolation and quarantine protocols, including contact notifications, are being followed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Falmouth Health Department and the Visiting Nurses Association. As has been indicated, given that COVID-19 testing rates have increased, the number of positives have and will continue to increase. There is community spread occurring and it will continue to occur as the test positive cases do not include the asymptomatic or mildly ill individuals. All can help slow the spread of this virus by continuing to commit to social distancing and practicing good personal hygiene, like regular handwashing.

As of 9:30 am today, March 30, 2020, the Town currently has 24 test positive cases of COVID-19 in our community. Proper isolation and quarantine protocols, including contact notifications, are being followed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Falmouth Health Department and the Visiting Nurses Association. As COVID-19 testing rates increase, the number of positives will continue to increase. We must assume that there is community spread occurring and will continue to occur as the test positive cases don not include the asymptomatic or mildly ill individuals.
