Town-wide virus cases hold steady from last week
Following two weeks of rising case and positivity rates, helped by an outbreak at the High Point Treatment Center, data released by the state show no change in Plymouth virus counts from the week before. Plymouth's rate per 100,000 remained at 36 and the percent of positive tests hovered just under 6.5%, both data points are based on a 14 day moving average.
The year's lowest rate per 100,000 occurred the week ending March 9, just before the outbreak at the High Point Treatment Center in Manomet, where according to the Plymouth Director of Public Karen Keane at least 50 residents have tested positive, with more testing yet to come, as of March 24th.
The highest rate per 100,000 was in mid-January at 89.4/100,000 residents since the state has been compiling the data in this format on a municipal level in early August of 2020.
