PLEASE SHARE

BOSTON – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced today, November 7 that the state will change how it determines a high-risk or red community for the coronavirus.

Framingham has been a red community for 9 consecutive weeks.

Marlborough has been red for a few weeks. Ashland has been red for two weeks. Natick was yellow last week.

Last week there were 121 red.

Later today, there will only be 16 red communities, when the state’s new dashboard is released.

Here are the new metrics:

Under 10,000 people:

  • Grey — Less than or equal to 10 total cases
  • Green — Less than or equal to 15 total cases
  • Yellow — Less than or equal to 25 total cases
  • Red — More than 25 total cases

Between 10,000-50,000 people:

  • Grey — Less than or equal to 10 total cases
  • Yellow — Less than 10 cases per 100,000 people and more than 10 total cases
  • Green — At least 10 cases per 100,000 people or a positive test rate of at least 5 percent
  • Red — At least 10 cases per 100,000 people and a positive test rate of at least 5 percent

More than 50,000 people:

  • Grey — Less than or equal to 15 total cases
  • Yellow — Less than 10 cases per 100,000 people and more than 15 total cases
  • Green — At least 10 cases per 100,000 people or a positive test rate of at least 4 percent
