The City of Lynn is unfortunately still a high-risk community, although there are signs of hope. On January 5th a new 24-hr new case record was broken with 210 new cases, breaking the previous record of 196 set only a few weeks prior. From Dec. 23rd until Jan. 5th it has been rare for that number to be below 150, and before that numbers were consistently getting higher. However the positive news is that the number of new cases hasn’t been above 140 since Jan. 16th, showing a positive trend in Lynn not seen since early November. Another bit of good news is that deaths related to COVID-19 seem to have slowed in the city with only 10 deaths reported in November, 23 in December, & 14 so far in January.
