Mass Reopening Plan - Phase 2
We are one week into Phase 2 today! (June 15th). This past week we saw the beginning of the summer season. In some regards the season seems to be starting early. The beaches seemed more full (we had great weather) and there was a bit more traffic than in previous years. I may simply be more aware of these upticks than I normally would be.
Importantly, stores and restaurants also began to open up. Many local eating establishments now have outdoor seating in their parking lots. Rooftop decks are beginning to open up. This next week will see even more 'opening up'. I can't wait! (but I have to).
Below is Gov Baker's chart, redrawn so we can track our progress. I'll try to maintain this chart so that the key dates remain front and center and so we can see our goal, the 'New Normal', slated for July 20th (ugh!). Each phase is a minimum of 3 weeks, with the possibility that any phase can expand as the data (and the Governor) requires.
