There were two new COVID-19 cases reported at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital making 11 new cases Islandwide in a week.
The hospital has had 32 total positive tests out of 1,990 total individuals tested. There are 6 tests pending.
On Saturday, the Island boards of health reported two new positive COVID-19 cases bringing the Island’s total cases to 44, according to a release issued Saturday. The two additional MVH cases bring that total to 46.
TestMV, the testing site at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School testing asymptomatic individuals, reported two new confirmed cases Friday. That site has tested 4,071 individuals; 11 have tested positive, 3,866 negative, and there are 194 pending results.
The boards of health have also linked 23 of the confirmed cases to several cases among eight different household groups.
The town of Aquinnah has tested 34 people with 30 negative and four pending results.
The Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, town of Aquinnah, boards of health and TestMV, the testing site at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School each report their own testing numbers. Those numbers are then all compiled by the boards of health.
The actual number of cases can be difficult to count due to lag time and overlaps in testing each day.
