Watertown’s COVID-19 cases continued to drop this week, but the Town saw three more COVID-19 deaths.
The fatalities, reported by the Watertown Health Department in the Town Manager’s weekly COVID-19 message, were the first for the Town since the first week of 2021.
Watertown had 133 cases reported over the previous 14 days in the Mass. Department of Public Health report of Feb. 11, 2021. That number is down 24 from the previous week, and has been trending down for the past three weeks.
The total number of cases in Town during the pandemic is 1,921, up 77 from the previous week’s MassDPH report.
The Watertown Health Department ran one vaccine clinic for residents age 75 and older last week, and has another one planned this week, but only received a total of 300 doses to administer. Some area CVS locations, including the one in Watertown at 189 Watertown St. (next to Stop & Shop), have received some vaccine, but appointments have filled quickly.
