The state began color-coding risk levels of each city and town last August. In January, there were 219 communities in the high-risk red zone.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health reported 241 new confirmed COVID cases and seven additional deaths in the state on Thursday. More than 3.7 million people in Massachusetts have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
