Rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people (Jan. 1-June 24, 2020)

Additionally, the Department of Public Health listed the number of people tested in each community and the percentage of positive tests. Statewide, 13% of those tested were positive for coronavirus, the third straight week in which that rate dropped by about a percentage point. Among cities and towns with more than 10 positive cases, Chelsea still had the highest percentage of positive tests with 35.88%, followed by Everett at 25.79% and Lynn at 25.55%.

Health officials note that these numbers reflect the number of people tested, not the number of tests performed, and that those people may have had more than one test.

Most of these communities appeared on last week’s list as well. Here is a closer look at that list, which was the seventh town-by-town breakdown released by the state.
