Town reports 40 newly confirmed cases over the past week; no new deaths

  There were 40 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases over the past seven days through Wednesday (June 29), according to Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree. That’s seven more new cases than reported last week. This week’s positive COVID cases reported to the town by the state Department of Public Health (DPH) increased the overall total to 9,389 confirmed cases, according to Crabtree.

  There have been more than 600 confirmed cases over the past 10 weeks as the virus continues to hang around, causing some people to continue wearing masks at Town Hall even though they are optional.

  Meanwhile, the state reported no new COVID-19-related deaths over the past seven days, leaving the overall total at 93 deaths since the outbreak of the Coronavirus in March of 2020. Fifteen weeks ago, total Saugus deaths related to COVID-19 were listed at 106. But that number was reduced to 88 because of a change in the guidelines used by health officials.

  “Our hearts and prayers go out to those families affected by this health pandemic,” Crabtree said.
