  • Salem’s active cases remains at somewhere between 1 and 4 total cases, where we have been since Tuesday, June 8. We can’t seem to get back to zero, but we are back to where we were in late September before things skyrocketed.
  • Salem’s new cases per 100K residents is too low to report. DHHS  says “Rate Not Calculated: For towns with cumulative cases between 1-4 in the last 14 days, data limited to protect the privacy of individuals.” It has been this low since Tuesday, June 1.

After allowing for those who lost their lives because of COVID-19, NH’s number of active cases went down by 0 since my last report at 265. That’s 73 fewer active cases than we had a week ago. NH has added 186 new cases in the past week.
