PHASED REOPENING ANNOUNCED
Today, Governor Baker announced a four-phased approach to reopening the Massachusetts economy, and published Mandatory Workplace Safety Standards that will apply universally to all workplaces that are open in Phase 1, and are designed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to employees and customers. As the Lt. Governor and I have mentioned on our weekly calls, this phased reopening (driven by public health indicators and guidance) charts a course to allow some businesses, services, and activities to resume, while protecting public health and limiting a resurgence of new COVID-19 cases.
You can learn more about the four-phase approach and Mandatory Workplace Safety Standards by reading:
The Reopening Advisory Board is scheduled to present a report on the reopening of the Massachusetts economy on May 18th. As has been noted previously, the timelines and rollout of reopening will be anchored in evidence that the public health threat is being effectively managed in Massachusetts.
