*NEW 9/3/20: MDPH now includes (+) antigen and serology lab results AND symptoms as confirmed cases (https://www.mass.gov/doc/covid-19-dashboard-september-2-2020/download). The Town of Amherst will report laboratory confirmed COVID-19 case counts on an ongoing basis. A decrease in running total or steady number when current cases increase may be due to resolved duplication of cases or cases being reassigned to another town/city where residence is established. For more Massachusetts data visit MDPH COVID-19 Cases. This COVID-19 case count reflects laboratory confirmed cases reported by MDPH’s computerized surveillance and case management system called MAVEN (Massachusetts Virtual Epidemiological Network).*
