COVID-19 UPDATE : 02.12.2021 Board of Health
Cases in Dover
The cumulative number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Dover increased by six over the week that ended on 2/11/2021. Over the past two weeks, the test % positivity rate fell to 0.75%, and the average daily incidence/100,000 population over the past two weeks dropped to 8.3. It had been as high as 58.4 during the post-holiday surge in mid-January . The numbers are consistent with the decline in cases across Massachusetts. Hopefully, there will not be a spike in cases later this month in the wake of the Super Bowl.
