*COVID-19 UPDATE* 
Twelve Additional Residents Test Positive, 25 More People have Recovered,
City Learns of Four New COVID-19-related Fatalities;
City to Raise the Pride Flag and Light up City Hall to Honor LGBTQ+ Pride Month

  • Twelve additional residents test positive for COVID-19, 25 more people have recovered from the virus, and City learns of four new fatalities: The number of people in the City who have tested positive for COVID-19 is now 1,294. With 426 cases recovered and 60 fatalities, Framingham currently has 808 active cases. The Framingham Health Department contacts the people who were potentially exposed and the owners of the businesses or places of employment where the potential exposures occurred to inform and counsel them on next steps (contact tracing). In addition to the active cases, the Framingham Health Department currently is following 291 residents in quarantine.

  • For the second year, Framingham will raise the Pride Flag, and City Hall will be lit in the colors of the rainbow for June to honor LGBTQ+ Pride Month: Raising the Pride Flag on June 1 and lighting City Hall is to recognize the enduring efforts and ongoing contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer members of our community. Due to the pandemic this year, there will be no event to commemorate the Flag raising, unlike in 2019, when the City raised the Pride Flag over City Hall for the first time. As well, Framingham’s City Hall will be illuminated each week with a different color of the Pride Flag during June.
