Monday May 15, Governor Baker issued an update on the graduated reopening process to come in the following months. Phase one of the plan will include the safe reopening of places of worship, manufacturing centers, and construction site.

This news comes with the new “Safer at Home” advisory. People over the age of 65 or with underlying health conditions should continue to stay home except for essential errands such as going to the grocery store or to attend to healthcare needs.

All residents are advised to leave home only for healthcare, worship, permitted work, shopping, and outdoor activities. All residents are required to cover their face when maintaining a six-foot distance is unavoidable.
