The City of Fall River has seen an additional 25 confirmed cases of COVID-19. An increase from yesterday’s total.

According to Mayor Coogan, there are 141 confirmed cases in Fall River.

“Easter Sunday and we jump up 25 more confirmed cases to 141. Just to give everyone a little scale Brockton has close to 600 confirmed cases. Say a prayer for them also. Strong and smart if we work together.”

Fall River had seen the biggest one day total since the pandemic began with 19 confirmed cases released on Saturday.

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.
