Town of Nantucket and Nantucket Cottage Hospital Begin Joint COVID-19 Reporting
(July 27, 2021) – In response to the regional surge of COVID-19 cases and the inherent public interest in understanding the pandemic’s presence on Nantucket, the Town of Nantucket is working with Nantucket Cottage Hospital to deliver daily COVID-19 testing results to the public beginning on Wednesday, July 28th, 2021.
“Our priority is reducing the uncertainty associated with this pandemic, while adapting to the needs of our community,” said Gary Shaw, CEO and President of Nantucket Cottage Hospital. “By ensuring maximum transparency with the Town, we can combat the rumors and misinformation circulating our community and get back to keeping our community safe and healthy.”
The daily report will provide the public with a more complete picture of the COVID-19 presence on Nantucket by compiling results from Nantucket Cottage Hospital, ACKDental, and Dan’s Pharmacy. The report will be available through the Town of Nantucket’s website as well as through both the Town and Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s social media sites.
Public Health Director Roberto Santamaria reminds us that “It is important to understand that those who are vaccinated are at much lower risk than those who are not. We urge everyone to avail themselves of the various vaccination sites available around the island.”
