Saugus nears COVID-19 perfection Only one newly confirmed COVID-19 case reported during the past week, according to the latest report

  The numbers haven’t been this good in Saugus since the state Department of Public Health began keeping tabs on COVID-19 cases for each community about 16 months ago.

  “As of July 1, 2021, Saugus has had 4,212 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 73 confirmed deaths since 03/01/2020,” Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree wrote in an email to The Saugus Advocate yesterday.

  That’s just one newly confirmed COVID-19 case over the past week. And it’s been weeks since the town reported its last death linked to the killer virus. Saugus’s COVID-19 case totals have dropped dramatically since the town ranked among the top communities in Massachusetts with the highest COVID-19 infection rate.

  Local officials credit the return to near normalcy with people getting vaccinated.
