Framingham has returned to the Baker Administration’s Covid-19 “green zone,” according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. With a daily rate of 7.8 known new cases per 100,000 population over the last two weeks, this also marks the first time the city has been below the state’s old 8.0 “red zone” threshold since August.
(However, a rate of 7.8 for seven days would still put Framingham in the CDC’s second-highest “substantial transmission” orange zone.)
The city’s two-week test positivity rate hit another record low at 1.29%.
Number of tests continued to decline from winter highs, dropping almost 15% from the prior week’s report. The number of cases dropped even more, by 29%.
64% of city residents have now received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, while 46.7% are fully vaccinated.
Rates are dropping in many communities throughout the state:
