Framingham Covid-19 Rate Still Stable

Framingham’s rate of known Covid-19 infections remained mostly stable this week, according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

The daily rate of 27.1 per 100,000 population was slightly lower than in last week’s report, while positivity dropped and number of tests administered rose.

The city remains in the Baker administration’s yellow zone and the CDC’s red zone for highest risk of community transmission. More than 100 total cases per 100,000 population over seven days is deemed highest risk of spread, according to the CDC scale.

(The map below is approximate, since the CDC uses a 7-day total while the state reports a 14-day total; calculations below divide the 14-day total by two, which may not reflect significant changes between the two weeks.)
