Mass Reopening Plan - Phase 3, Week 3 - New Rules
Responding to what the Governor is seeing across the country, he has expanded the 14 day quarantine rules, now including a $500/day fine for non-compliance, effective August 1st. Folks coming into the state from NY, NJ, other New England state, and Hawaii (really?) are OK. All others will need to quarantine themselves for 14 days, or until they test negative for the virus. They will need to sign a form stating that they will self-quarantine and they are aware of a $500/day fine. Two links....
Eastham had 2 new cases of COVID-19 this week (up 2, and breaking a many week Zero-streak). All of Cape Cod has only had 1693 cases, up 71 from last week. Cape Cod Hospital has 0 (zero) COVID patients.
Below is Gov Baker's chart, redrawn (again) so we can track our progress. I'll try to maintain this chart so that the key dates remain front and center.
