Framingham Covid-19 Rates, Positivity Plummet as Vaccinations Rise

Framingham’s rate of daily known new Covid-19 cases plummeted to 1.1 per 100,000 population, according to data released today by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The city’s Covid-19 rate is no longer highest in Middlesex County, as several communities are still higher than 2.

Framingham’s test positivity, meanwhile, dropped to 0.346%. Walk-in testing ended in downtown Framingham on June 18, but free drive-in testing by appointment remains available at the Maple Street Framingham State University commuter parking lot.

And while number of tests administered continued to decline, number of overall cases showed a sharper drop. Tests were down 3.4% from the prior 14-day period; cases were down 6.6%.

71.2% of Framingham residents have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose – a strong vaccination showing considering that roughly 15% of the population is too young to qualify for vaccination. 62.4% of city residents are fully vaccinated.
