FRAMINGHAM – Framingham is a high-risk or red community for the coronavirus.

While the state’s new metric has lowered the City of Framingham from red to yellow, after 9 consecutive weeks at red, the City’s rate of COVID cases has increased from 11 per day per 100,000 two weeks ago, to 15.6 cases per day last week to 23.1 cases per day yesterday.

The City of Framingham is one of six communities out of 351 that the state is providing additional assistance. Framingham is featured in the new television ads promoting COVID safety by the Commonwealth.

Since the beginning of September, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts provided outreach teams who speak multi-languages to distribute multi-language flyers and free masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Framingham, and this weekend the outreach teams be dropping off care kits at Halsead Condominiums and at Alta Union House, the new apartment building downtown.
