Default Moultonborough Coronavirus

I see Moultonborough as had cumulative total of 15 cases to date. Second most to Conway in the county and not far behind Gilford/Laconia area. Conway and gilford/laconia area I understand being a more urban environment. Moultonborough I would think would be more on par with Tuftonboro and Sandwich. Any word around town on what has driven the cases up? Maybe the apartment complex in town?? Just curious if anyone knows.

I have no idea and donít know the word around town ( or how reliable that is).

But I suspect the numbers of cumulative cases is so small that it is difficult to come up with what would be a statistically, scientific conclusion that Moultonborough is much worse off than other areas you mention. I hope we donít get into a discussion of which group is causing this when there may not be a REAL difference in Míboros rate.

I would really like to understand the context of the number. Are these full time residents who have tested positive or are these visitors who were residing in the town when they became symptomatic? If they are visitors, their exposure could have happened in their home state and they were already infected but not yet symptomatic by the time they arrived. Weíve been watching the number closely as we have a high-risk disabled son. There did ďappearĒ to be a spike once things began to open and we hit the height of the tourist season. Whether or not that spike is statistically significant I canít say. Also, as I said who does the number actually represent? Regardless, we can all be thankful the numbers are so low here.

The numbers here can be very misleading. Anyone staying in Moultonborough (or any town) as a visitor or non-resident, who tests positive, their test results will not be added to the town caseload. It will be reported back to their home town. I have always felt it should be known to both locations. Recording and stats need to be resolved by others. Point is if you test positive the people nearby should be informed somehow. IMHO

I think the positive numbers are always relayed back to your home state. So if you get sick in Moultonborough, get tested up here, but you live in Boston, it gets marked as a positive case for Boston.

Another interesting stat I would be curious to know is how many people test positive but have no symptoms.

The answer would not support the narrative.

You may well be correct; but I can’t find anywhere that supports the answer. The numbers you reported earlier are from the New Hampshire State website...but despite a lot of Covid 19 info, I could not find any specific information to support any speculation. The data reference is to “residents”; but it does not really define that.

I don’t believe that there is a concerted effort in NH to test a random sample to answer the question about asymptomatic carriers. Almost everyone tested is tested because of some symptoms.

There are some data about asymptomatic carriers but probably best not to go too far afield and try to stick to NH.

Appointments are necessary for testing at Huggins. I've asked family members, driving here from California this week, to be tested.

I suspect they'll be screened and accepted for testing.

We should by default just blame the seasonal residents and assume they brought it with them to infect our home state! They really should be held liable!

If they tested positive ( I hope not, of course) would they be counted as NH cases? I donít know the answer.

Reviewing the state-wide infection statistics, while the overall number of cases is rather low, it looks like all, or substantially all, of the state's cities and towns have had at least one case reported.

That implies the virus is pretty much everywhere.

1 day!

A staff member with a fever has closed the elementary school- per administration.
Only staff has attended school, so far.

1 day!

Bummer. My son is a teacher in Mass, about to start in person. One thing left unsaid is the stress that all this uncertainty--not knowing how long in person will last--puts on the teachers and kids. They can't get a picture in their heads of how even the next few days will play out.

It's horrible, for sure. We're supposed to be in school Monday to start training, and I have no idea what I'm teaching, where I'm teaching, or whom I'm teaching. Add to that the various *potential* schedules, and it's chaos.
