For the second day in a row, Massachusetts exceeded 2,000 new Covid-19 cases, for the first time since Feb. 11 and 12, when the state was coming down from its post-Thanksgiving surge.
As older residents and essential workers keep getting vaccinated, the new cases are increasingly coming among young people. Acting Mayor Kim Janey reported today that more than 50% of Boston's recent Covid-19 cases are among people under 29. Nicholas Bauer has more on Boston.
The state reported 40 Covid-19 deaths today.
