June 15th, 2021 COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Data

    As of today, confirmed COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts totaled 662,855.

    The 7-day average of new COVID-19 cases in the state has been trending downward since early April.  The statewide positivity rate is down to 0.42% and the 7-day average of confirmed deaths from COVID-19 has dropped to 4.1 from a peak of around 175.

    According to public health data from the MA Department of Public Health (DPH) released last week, the Town’s designation is now “grey”, indicating 10 or few newer cases. 

    There have been 5 new cases of COVID-19 in Hingham over the past 14 days, and a total of 1,966 cases in Hingham since the start of the pandemic.  

    The average daily incidence rate for the Town of Hingham dropped to 1.5 per 100,000 residents, and our percent positivity rate was 0.44% for the previous 14 days.

Vaccine Rollout

    According to DPH’s daily COVID-19 vaccine report, over 4 million people in Massachusetts have been fully vaccinated as of today.    

    Vermont and Massachusetts continue to lead the way nationwide in terms of percent of the population that is fully vaccinated, according to Johns Hopkins University, with MA at almost 55%. 

    As of last week, nearly 63% of Hingham residents have been fully vaccinated.  

    We are continuing to get the word out to ensure that any Hingham residents who still wish to get the vaccine know they can access it locally through several pharmacies (such as CVS, Walgreens, and the Hingham Center Pharmacy) as well as through the state’s mobile vaccine program.  

    Residents looking for help accessing the COVID-19 vaccine should call the state’s Vaccination Central Intake Line at 833-983-0485.  They can also contact our Senior Center staff at 781-804-2292.

Reopening & Public Meetings

    Yesterday, Town Hall and Town Offices, the Senior Center, and the Recreation Department’s Fitness Room reopened to the public for the first time in several months. Hingham Public Library also returned to a normal operating schedule with evening hours.  It is wonderful to see more life and energy safely return to our facilities. 

    In line with CDC and DPH guidance, unvaccinated people are advised to continue wearing face coverings and to practice social distancing when accessing municipal facilities to help protect themselves and others from COVID-19.  We have installed plastic barriers at many service counters and hand sanitizing stations throughout our buildings.  

    We ask that everyone abide by and be respectful of the health and safety protocols we have put in place.  The safety of our residents and employees is our primary concern.
