The daily update is also available in the following places if you’d like to share with your friends:
As of today, April 12, 2020, there have been a total of forty-eight (48) positive cases of COVID-19 in Bedford and one (1) death reported to the Town of Bedford Board of Health by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH). The total case number includes residents of the Town of Bedford, Hanscom Air Force Base and the Bedford Veteran’s Administration (VA) Campus as reported to us by the MA DPH.
Ten (10) of the total Bedford cases have already recovered and have come off of isolation and there is currently one (1) known Person Under Investigation. There are other individuals impacted by COVID-19 in the community that have not sought medical attention, and/or have not been tested and are isolating at home regardless. Those individuals do not appear on the surveillance reports the Town receives from the MA DPH.
For those who celebrate, Passover and Easter have looked a bit different this year. It’s hard to be away from family and friends during a season normally filled with rituals, and memories. I hope you all were able to enjoy some quiet time with family over the past few days, or at very least, able to take advantage of today’s warmer spring weather. I know that I have enjoyed the quiet of this Easter Sunday. For Dave and I, today included a nice long walk by the ocean, the sounds of Andrea Bocelli live at the Duomo di Milano in Milan, Italy while preparing for a (downsized) traditional Easter dinner, and the joy of having Cadbury mini eggs with breakfast, and lunch…and let’s be honest, likely dinner, too.
Happy Sunday, friends.
Stay healthy!…(and wash your hands as often as possible.)
