While the Mattapoisett Board of Health confirmed that the town has its first positive cases of COVID-19, it was tight-lipped about the actual number of cases and whether those individuals were at hospital being treated or they were self-quarantined.

“As COVID-19 testing capabilities expand in Massachusetts and transmission of the disease continues throughout the State, we will see an increase in the number of positive cases of COVID-19 here in Mattapoisett. Local community spread of COVID-19 is happening now, including in Mattapoisett,” said Mattapoisett Board of Health agent Kayla Davis.

In addition, Marion Health Director Karen Walega confirmed the town’s first positive case of COVID-19 and that the person was in isolation.

The remaining town within the “tri-town” region, Rochester, has yet to declare a single case.

This announcement comes 2 days after the town of Acushnet announced their first positive case of COVID-19 and 6 days after the town of Fairhaven announced their first case. Both individual are in self-quarantine.

New Bedford has a total of 31 positive cases, Fall River now has 20 confirmed cases and Massachusetts as a whole has 5,752 cases with 54 deaths.
