Data Updates

 

As of July 1st, 2022 the Public Health Department is transitioning from daily COVID-19 reports to weekly reports. All daily data since March 2020 has been converted to show counts for each week.

10/17/23 Important Data Notice: On October 5th, 2023 the State Public Health Department has launched a new viral respiratory illness dashboard that readjusted the reporting start and end dates. The Revere dashboard for COVID-19 reports has also adjusted to reflect the State's changes. Follow this link to view the archive of the data story from the May 2023 update:

May 2023 Update COVID Dashboard for Webpage 

7/19/22 Important Data Notice: Confirmed Cases and Probable Cases have been recombined as an adjustment to our new reporting system. On a monthly basis a new report will be pulled to re-evaluate and confirm our numbers. We greatly appreciate your patience as we transition into weekly reporting. 

7/18/22 Important Data Notice: In the conversion of daily COVID-19 reports into weekly reports, the 'Total' number of cases has been separated into 'Confirmed Cases' and 'Probable Cases'. Confirmed cases represent results from positive PCR tests.  Probable cases represent results from positive rapid antigen tests that are used at certain testing sites. The reason for this change is because the Probable case numbers are subject to change depending on if a person proceeds to get a confirmatory PCR test within 48 hours of their initial antigen test. If you have any questions related to the data please contact the Board of Health. 

7/6/22 Check our the City of Revere's new COVID-19 Story Dashboard. Click through the arrows below to navigate the city's data. 

5/10/23 As of 5/8/2023 we have reviewed our COVID-19 reporting metrics and will only be continuing to report the most relevant data points moving forward.  We will archive all old data presentations in the link below for historical review and use. 

1/9/2024 As of 1/3/2024, the City of Revere is no longer updating COVID data. We will continue to assess the need to have regular data updates based on COVID case trends.

MULTILINGUAL INFORMATION ABOUT TESTING

Testing Positive for COVID-19

So you tested positive for COVID-19, what now?

1. Call your doctor!

2. Start isolating.


    • Please isolate in your home for at least 5 full days from either your symptom start date or the date of your positive test.
    • If you're still feeling sick, DO NOT LEAVE ISOLATION AFTER DAY FIVE. Stay at home.
    • Your symptoms must be gone for 24 hours or more to be cleared from isolation.
    • If possible, start isolating from people in your home: stay in a separate room, if possible use a different bathroom from the rest of your household or clean the bathroom well after each use. Wear a mask if you are around other family members, and don’t prepare meals with your family if possible.
  1. Call your close contacts!
    • Call anyone who you were in close contact with for the two days before your positive test or two days before you started developing symptoms. Let them know that they potentially have been exposed to COVID and need to take appropriate steps.
    • Your close contacts may also need to quarantine and should get tested about 3-5 days after exposure. Learn more about where to get tested in Revere here.
  1. If you took an at-home COVID-19 rapid test and got a positive result, please assume you are positive and follow the instructions above.

The purpose of this hotline is 1) to provide COVID-19 guidance to people in our communities, and 2) to provide resource coordination to residents isolating at home away from others so that households can meet essential needs during the isolation period.
