Phase 3-Part 2 has been postponed

Looks like we’ll be waiting longer to go indoor roller skating

During Friday’s press conference, Gov. Charlie Baker announced that the next step of Phase 3 reopening in the state has been postponed indefinitely due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases.

Baker referenced reports of large parties and unauthorized gatherings as the reason why the state is slowing down reopening.  He also announced that a COVID Enforcement and Intervention Team will be created to help with enforcement efforts and coordinate intervention efforts in high-risk communities. Police have also been authorized to enforce state’s COVID-19 orders and levy fines.

Additionally, Baker added that outdoor gathering (public and private property) limits will be reduced from 100 to 50 beginning Tuesday. Face coverings will be required where more than 10 people from different households will be mixing.

Restaurant rules

Restaurant rules have also been updated.  Alcoholic beverages may only be served for on-site consumption if accompanied by orders for food prepared on-site. Bars that are currently pretending to be restaurants will be closed by state.
