Natick has slipped from green status to yellow on the Massachusetts COVID-19 community-level data map, which gets updated each Wednesday afternoon.
Last week Natick was in the green, which means the community has an average daily case rate of less than 4 per 100,000 residents. Natick had been at 3.58. This week Natick has been downgraded to yellow because its average daily case rate has topped 4.
The next jump up is to red, which designates an 8-plus average daily case rate. Framingham, Holliston, and Southborough are among nearby communities in the red.
