This past Monday, Governor Baker announced that Massachusetts is lifting all restrictions on businesses as of May 29th - moving full reopening up by 2 months. In addition, Governor Baker also announced the state of emergency will be lifted June 15th.
This means all businesses will be able to reopen at full capacity and mask regulations will be limited to a handful of higher-risk settings including K-12 schools, health care facilities, and other settings that host vulnerable populations. Face coverings will still be mandatory for all riders on public and private transportation systems.
