“We really thought we had beat Covid,” said Alex Morse, who arrived this spring as town manager.

Morse didn’t think much of it, five days after the holiday, when the town’s Board of Health logged two new cases of coronavirus.

Alongside the numbers was an unsettling fact: Most of the people testing positive were vaccinated.

The good news is that people infected in Provincetown, about three-quarters of whom were fully vaccinated, were, for the most part, not seriously ill; no deaths were reported, and only seven people were hospitalized.

said — and people with so-called breakthrough infections may spread the virus to others.

In Provincetown, this news has left behind a feeling of whiplash.

Morse, the town manager, said.

Steve Katsurinis, the chair of the town Board of Health, said the venues were in line with C.D.C.

“We were told, ‘Now you’re vaccinated, and everyone is vaccinated, you can go out and live the pre-Covid lifestyle,’” he said.

What puzzled him, he said, was that so many of the infected people were vaccinated.

“I couldn’t believe, frankly, that vaccinated people were getting and spreading it, the way that the contact tracing people were saying,” he said.

Days passed, he said, before it was clear that the virus circulating was the Delta variant, “and I went, oh, OK.

Morse said he was concerned about overreacting, or making decisions “based on the loudest and most frantic voices.”.

Morse said, and made it mandatory on July 25.

Late-summer Provincetown is a different Provincetown — still crowded, but cautious, alert for bad outcomes.

Rick Murray, the general manager of the Crown and Anchor, a beachside inn that houses bars and nightclubs, says it is part of the community’s DNA to be “very, very responsible” in a health crisis.
