- Salem is doing a good job! We have the same number of total COVID-19-positive cases today as we did 17 days ago. Let’s keep it that way!
- According to Worldometer, which seems to be the most up-to-date source, the world has now had more than10 Million confirmed infections, and over half a million deaths.
- Since I started tracking the US numbers a month ago, yesterday was the highest one-day positive result. Today was second, per Worldometer.
- Massachusetts had more new infections today than they’ve had since June 12. Today was 373 new cases; their daily average for the last two weeks is 234. While today is nothing to be alarmed about … yet … it is worth watching.
- Nearby Essex County in MA, has now had over 16,000 confirmed cases. All of NH has had a total of 5,757 confirmed cases.
- While Manchester’s active cases have gone down, Nashua’s have gone up, bring them back into the 50+ active case category. Only three other NH communities have that many active cases.
- NH has 46 more cases than we had yesterday. (DHHS says 51.) 21 of the new cases were part of an ongoing outbreak at Greenbriar Healthcare in Nashua, where there have been 35 staff infections, 82 residents with infections, and 23 deaths.
- Yesterday I shared that the State had announced 34 new cases but I came up with 13 cases. Somehow I screwed up. I should have reported 33. I’m human. I screwed up. When I do, I’m willing to own it. I apologize for any confusion or unintentional misrepresentation. Today the difference is 5 cases.
- Two more people died today. That’s 20 in the last three days. That’s 20 too many.

Have a great weekend! I hope this finds you relaxed and happy. I didn’t sleep well last night, and I’m fighting to stay awake as I write this, so the only witty thing I can think to say is this:. Always wear a mask when out in public. Keep your social distancing. Wash your hands. Stay safe, and always, be kind.
