Town of Nantucket Statement to the Nantucket Community (Residents and Visitors) Regarding COVID19 “September Surge”
September 11, 2020
Recently, Nantucket has experienced what is considered a minor surge in COVID19 cases, with 7 cases on September 9th and another 7 on September 10th , bringing the total number of cases to 77 as of September 10, 2020. These are the highest number of cases in a short period of time that we have so far seen in Nantucket. While this is not an unanticipated situation, due to the nature of the corona virus, we can expect episodic growth in the number of cases over the next 10-14 days.
