FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Public Schools reported 88 new COVID cases today, January 13, including 15 cases at Dunning Elementary
On Monday, the district reported a record, one-day high of 148 new cases, after a record one-day high of 141 cases on January 6. Yesterday, the public school district reported 116 new coronavirus cases.
It is unknown if the 88 cases are all students, staff, or a combination of both. The district does not separate that number in its dashboard.
Today, the district surpassed 1,300 COVID cases during 2021-22 school year. There are roughly 10,000 students in the public school district.
Students and staff returned back to the classrooms on Monday, January 3, after the winter holiday vacation break.
There have been 708 cases in the school district since January 1, 2022.
That means more than half of all cases this school year have been since January 1, 2022.
Last Wednesday, it was decided to pause for two weeks all group indoor activities to limit the spread of COVID in the City.
That decision meant that sports, theatre, clubs, and after-school academic supports were paused.
Sports, clubs, and theatre are still paused along with all other group activities indoor in the City of Framingham.
The high school musical was moved from performances this weekend to February 2022.
But Wednesday, it was announced the pause would be lifted effective Friday, January 14.
