Non-Essential Businesses to Close + a Stay Home Advisory

On Monday morning, Governor Charlie Baker ordered all non-essential businesses to close starting Tuesday, March 24th at 12noon through April 7th due to COVID-19.  Essential businesses and services that can stay open include supermarkets, package stores, medical marijuana shops and the MBTA.  Here is a full list of essential services. 

Restaurants can still operate takeout/delivery as long as they are following safety guidelines.

Baker also issued a Stay Home Advisory. This is not an order – just an advisory.  You can go to the grocery store etc., go for a walk, but it’s strongly recommended to stay indoors.  So please stay at home.

Here a refresher on social distancing in addition to Surviving Social Distancing: A guide by Heather.

Mayor Marty Walsh will hold a press conference at 2pm on Monday re: COVID-19.
