FRAMINGHAM – In December, more than 3 dozens businesses, restaurants, and day care centers reported a total of 75 employees positive with COVID-19, according to City of Framingham records, obtained by SOURCE via a FOIA request.

By law, any establishment that has a positive COVID employee is required to notify the Framingham Board of Health.

The City of Framingham has not been publishing this information for the public, and establishments have not always been transparent, either.

For those reasons, SOURCE, requested the list of businesses in the City that reported a positive COVID employee in the month of December, through a Massachusetts Public Records Law request.

Staples HQ reported the post cases with 5 positive employees.

Several had 4 positive employees including, Pao Brazil Bakery, which reported 4 positive COVID-19 employees on December 29 to the City of Framingham

In Massachusetts, if an employee, customer, or vendor of restaurant tests positive or is presumed to be positive for COVID-19, the restaurant must immediately shut down and clean and disinfect, in accordance with CDC guidelines before reopening.
