Citing recent large parties that fly in the face of the COVID-19 restrictions, Gov. Charlie Baker said Friday Massachusetts will indefinitely postpone entering the second step of Phase 3.
The Republican governor said Friday that the state would not only postpone this segment of the reopening but also ramp up enforcement, creating a multi-agency coalition with police officials to crack down on violations of the COVID-19 regulations that are supposed to limit community transmissions.
In some respects were entering a new phase in our battle against COVID-19, Baker said during a news conference at the Massachusetts State House.
That new phase involves preventing a slow creep of COVID-19 rates, as Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders described it last week. The state plans to start releasing larger batches of community-level data to give a closer look of how how towns and cities are faring in the coronavirus pandemic.
Postponing the second step means that theaters and performance venues cannot hold indoor shows. Outdoor performances, such as drive-in movie theaters, are allowed to continue.
While batting cages, bowling alleys and driving ranges have gotten the green light to resume, laser tag, roller skating, trampolines and obstacle courses will be put on hold.
Bakers announcement also means that businesses allowed to reopen in Phase 4 bars, overnight camps and arcades must remain closed.
