COVID-19 Updates

Posted on: May 31, 2022

[ARCHIVED] May 31, 2022 COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Report

The federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) continues to report Plymouth County’s COVID-19 community level to be High.  At this level, the CDC recommends:

  • Wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public places regardless of vaccination status.
  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
  • Follow the CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine.
  • Get tested if you have been exposed.

The Town’s COVID-19 “dashboard”, on our COVID 19 Updates web page, shows:

  • The following data is from 5/8 – 5/21 compared to the previous period of 5/1 – 5/14:
    • Hingham’s 14-day average incidence rate is 57.7, up from 56.8, a 1.6% increase from the previous period
    • Hingham’s 14-day average positivity rate is 15.2%, up from 14.6%, a 4.3% from the previous week
  • We believe that some of the drivers for this increase include vacation spikes and testing due to travel plans and the removal of the mask mandate on public transportation and airlines. 
  • We will continue to update the dashboard on Mondays

We remain vigilant and will continue to monitor data and take coordinated action as needed.
