Fall River sees biggest jump in confirmed COVID-19 cases to 116 total



The City of Fall River has seen an additional 19 cases. The biggest one day jump.

According to Mayor Coogan, there are 116 confirmed cases in Fall River.

“We all need to work hard over the next few weeks to maintain social distancing and wash our hands. Please try to not get lazy or tired -this is supposed to be the start of the surge. We’ll see. Stay strong and smart.”

The previous one day high had been 17.

The Fall River Health Department is in contact with the individuals who have tested positive as well as their contacts. These individuals are in isolation and quarantine.

Mayor Coogan’s Office continues to encourage residents to practice social distancing. This means keeping a distance of 6 feet between individuals. Continue to wash your hands on a regular basis, clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and stay home as much as possible, especially when you are sick. These measures will help to limit the spread of COVID-19.
