Mass.Gov updates the Commonwealth’s community-level coronavirus data every week and displays it for each town on a map of the state.

On Friday, November 6, the Commonwealth released a 93-page, enhanced data set. The granular data to be updated on a weekly or biweekly basis, including town-by-town reports, is expected to be released each Friday

A new strategy is in place for calculating the town-by-town statistics and assigning a color category. Using this strategy, Bedford appears as a “GREEN” community. The calculations are based on each community’s population; under the new guidelines, Bedford falls within the 10K-50K middle column metrics.
