In a recent COVID-19 update, the Dover Board of Health alerted residents that the rise in cases has led to the town being in the "red" category in the Department of Public Health's reporting system. This classification is given to towns that have had an average daily rate of eight or more cases per 100,000 population. As noted in the update, "Dover's average daily rate over the past two weeks is 9.6 cases/100,000."
As cases continue to rise throughout the state, residents are reminded to pay attention to social distancing, wear masks, and wash hands frequently. Due to the uptick in cases, Dover residents are asked to limit their social contacts as much as possible to avoid COVID-19.
