Massachusetts Coronavirus Cases by Town

I made a choropleth of MA cases by town. This was data that the MA DPH was providing on a weekly basis, but I couldn’t find anyone else aggregating and charting.

This is awesome. How do you aggregate data at the level of towns? I’ve been playing around with local Coronavirus case comparisons this week, and I’m stuck at county levels.

Mass DPH releases town level data once per week in their “Weekly Public Health Report.” Since it’s not daily, it doesn’t have the same time granularity as the county-level data.

I’ve been aggregating the weekly data into my own spreadsheet—since on the website it’s only available as a series of PDFs—which you’re welcome to make use of. I’ve also been aggregating wastewater measurement data from MWRA there.
