These 222 Mass. communities are in the ‘red zone’ for COVID-19 risk

This week, 222 communities in Massachusetts are at high risk for COVID-19 transmission, according to data released by the state.

This is a slight decrease from last week, when 229 communities made the “red zone” list. The state’s average daily case count also remains in the red zone with 75.5 cases per 100,000 residents for the last two weeks.

With President Joe Biden sworn into office on Wednesday, the new president has released a variety of executive orders to help curb virus spread. Biden also promised that the United States would rejoin the World Health Organization, reversing former President Donald Trump’s promise to leave the organization in July. It’s a move public health expert Dr. Ashish Jha called “critically important.”
