There was one new case of COVID-19 reported at TestMV Monday. The new case is a woman in her 40s.

TestMV, which is located at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, reported its total number of confirmed cases at 30.

The asymptomatic testing site has tested 15,786 individuals with 15,352 negatives, and 404 pending results.

Martha’s Vineyard Hospital has tested 5,194 individuals. Of those 47 were positive, 5,134 were negative results, and 13 are pending results.

Both TestMV and the hospital reported one case each on Friday.

The town of Aquinnah has tested 293 individuals. Of those 283 have come back negative and 10 are pending results.

The Martha’s Vineyard boards of health have confirmed another case, bringing the Island’s total number of confirmed cases since March to 77.

Of the Island’s 77 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 74 are no longer symptomatic and have been released from isolation. One case was lost to a follow-up check-in and two are being monitored.

Through contact tracing, the cases of 27 individuals, or 35 percent of the Vineyard’s cases, have been linked to another individual.

Due to the hospital, boards of health, and the town of Aquinnah all reporting their own data at different times of day, and due to some people being tested at multiple sites, exact numbers can be difficult to calculate.

Of the 78 confirmed cases, 47 are female and 31 are male. Of those, 17 of the cases are 50-59 years old, 16 are 20-29 years old, 11 cases are 60-69 years old, 14 are 30-39 years old, 11 are 20 years old or younger, five are 40-49, and four are 70 years or older.

The boards of health are also reporting on probable cases. The Island’s total number of presumed positives is 24. Of those, 21 were positive antibody tests, and three were symptomatically positive.

Of the probable cases, 14 are female and 10 are male. Of the 24 presumed positive cases, seven are aged 60-69, five are aged 50-59, three are aged 40-49, five are aged 20-29, two are under 20 years old, and two are over the age of 70.

In other news, a band consisting of recent Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School graduates, Era of Good Feelings, was scheduled to play at the Martha’s Vineyard Drive-In near the Ice Arena Friday. The performance was canceled because one or more band members were suspected to have been exposed to COVID-19. It’s not clear if the potential exposure has anything to do with the two cases reported Friday.

Massachusetts continues to see positive cases of COVID-19 across the state. On Monday, there were 465 new cases and 20 new deaths. The state now has 132,905 confirmed cases and a total of 9,315 deaths from COVID-19.
