Local media outlets are reporting that the city of Boston is asking Provincetown visitors to isolate and get a COVID-19 test.
From the piece (emphasis mine):
Boston health officials on Tuesday urged recent visitors to Provincetown to self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19 after a cluster of cases was linked to the popular Cape Cod tourist town.
At least 35 cases of COVID-19 in Boston have been traced to Provincetown, with the vast majority of cases involving people who were fully vaccinated, according to the Boston Public Health Commission.
In a related piece from yesterday (linked from the above), 80 fully vaccinated Massachusetts residents have died from COVID-19 and the number of “breakthrough cases” in Massachusetts now exceeds 5,000.
From the second piece (emphasis mine):
As of July 17, 716 more fully vaccinated residents had tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the number of breakthrough cases statewide to 5,166, numbers released by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health indicate. There were 4,450 breakthrough cases reported last week.
Fifty-seven fully vaccinated residents were hospitalized and later died from the virus, while 23 others who were vaccinated died without going to the hospital.
A total of 272 fully vaccinated people have been hospitalized after becoming infected.
It dangerously incorrect to maintain that the pandemic is over or that “the chances of one getting it [are] low and the chances of it being severe/deadly [are] tiny”.
