[ARCHIVED] 37 Additional Positive Cases of COVID-19 in the Town of Shrewsbury

covid-19 Coronavirus

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be advised that Shrewsbury has 37 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the count to 143.  There were 25 cases from the weekend that were recovered from the system, along with 12 new cases from today, bringing the total to 37. The town was informed via a MAVEN (state wide data base for communicable disease surveillance) conference call yesterday that there was a system error in the system over the weekend. This was the language we received: “Due to the volume of confirmed and contact COVID-19 events, some MAVEN events are not appearing in their appropriate MAVEN workflows. These events may seem to “disappear” between workflows, as well.” The WDPH epidemiologist ran special reports today to extract this missing data from many of the Alliance communities’ workflows. We have been assured by MDPH that this issue will be rectified as it impacted workflows and case counts across the Commonwealth over the three day weekend.
