COVID-19 Weekly Public Health Report for Weston

covid dashboard 11.19.20

*On Friday, November 6, 2020 the Office of the Governor, in concert with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, adopted new metrics for measuring the risk level in the states' communities. The new standards immediately lowered the number of red, or high risk, communities from 121 to 16 statewide. The new system groups communities based on population size and then measures risk for each group using metrics specific to that group. No other manner of calculations, other than risk (color) level, has changed.

Count and Rate Confirmed and Tests Performed 1/1-11/19/2020 - The next update to these numbers will be on November 27th due to Thanksgiving on November 26th.

Questions can be directed to the Weston Public Health Department:

Data presented updated by Massachusetts Department of Public Health each Wednesday by 6:00 p.m. and posted for Weston each Thursday.
