Notes

  • Case counts are obtained by each local Board of Health through reports submitted to the Massachusetts Virtual Epidemiologic Network (MAVEN).
  • This data includes information for Swampscott residents only
  • For the purpose of this data, a week is defined as Monday-Sunday
  • Case counts are fluid for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited, to a probable case that then has a positive PCR test, which would change the case classification from probable to a confirmed case, a case that actually lives in another community so that case is transferred and counted by the other community, etc.
  • The data provided does not include those that are under quarantine (ex. those that are quarantined because they are considered a close contact of a positive case or travelers that have been asked to self-quarantine upon arrival into the state).
  • Isolation: Average isolation is 10 days +/- 4 days depending on a variety of factors (ex. symptom resolution)
