The state Department of Public Health today reported 1,046 Covid-19 cases, the first time Massachusetts has exceeded 1,000 daily cases since May 6 (greater-than-1,000 numbers on two recent Mondays include cases from over the preceding weekends).
Hospitalizations are also up, to 265 - the highest number since May 25.
Deaths, however, remain low - just 2 reported today.
The case numbers could continue to climb, according to data from sampling at Deer Island, which is showing a spike in viral particles in sewage passing through the MWRA plant:
