For the first time in about 16 months, Saugus got through the week without a confirmed COVID-19 case.
Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree noted that COVID cases remained at 4,212 as of Wednesday (July 7) — the same overall total reported last week. Last week, there was just one newly-confirmed Coronavirus case reported in town.
The death toll of 73 hasn’t revealed any changes in weeks.
Local officials credit the return to near normalcy with people getting vaccinated.
