The high school musical was moved from performances this weekend to February 2022.

Loring Arena is closed to group activities and the Framingham Public Library moved all programming to online and remote, through January 21.

The decision was due to a spike in COVID cases. cases rose more than 190% in the week prior to more than 1,300 positive cases. The City said it had more than 1,700 active coronavirus cases.

The city’s new case numbers will be released tomorrow, January 12.
