It is with great sadness that Mayor Kokoros reports 25 additional deaths in Braintree due to COVID-19. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families as well as to all who are suffering from the effects of this pandemic.
The 25 additional deaths occurred between May 1, 2020 and June 23, 2020. Due to an unintentional oversight in the State’s reporting system the town was not notified of these deaths when they occurred.
June 23, 2020
New Cases: 0
Total Cases: 887
Total Deaths: 115
