Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker issued a new stay-at-home advisory Monday asking all residents to be in their homes from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily and ordered restaurants to stop table service at 9:30 p.m. to ensure customers can get home in time.
The stay-at-home advisory takes effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday. The state allows exceptions for going to work, seeking medical care, going to the grocery store and picking up take-out food.
Were doing much better than many other states and many other countries, but hereto weve let down our guard, he said.
The curfew also applies to all gatherings under a gatherings order that accompanies the stay-at-home advisory. The state is limiting private gatherings to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. The limit on gatherings held in public spaces, such as weddings, remains the same.
Those who violate the gatherings order face a fine of $500 per infraction.
Businesses that sell alcohol that violate the gatherings order, including hosting large gatherings after hours, could face a fine and could get their license suspended, revoked or canceled.
The state also issued an expanded mask mandate, which requires people to wear masks even if they are 6 feet away from others. Like the other restrictions, the mandate takes effect Friday.

Wouldn’t be surprising if all Democrat governers set curfew in their states to 8:30AM on election day.
I’ve always thought when the tyrannical force begins at least some of the leftist will figure it out. We will see in a couple days
Tall Deval bragged last week that he did not Vote for President Trump.
Clueless Joe had Baker on his Cabinet appointment list.
It is. I went on my my local FB town forum and all the Karen’s were so happy to see this. Any attempt to point out this was tried before and failed miserably with massive economic disruption and didn’t stop CCPVirus from spreading was futile. They all went back to “muy supper deadly virus that spreads” and will kill/hospitalize anyone it infects narrative.
I fear in that these Karen’s will bitch and moan and demand masks, “social distancing”, event cancellations, etc. every cold/flu season “to save just one life.” And many Governors and lefty businesses will gladly comply I fear.
Good point. I wouldn’t be surprised if Baker did it to try to try to get on Bite Me good side if he wins.
And CT just played follow the leader and mandated almost the same thing.
Chuck Baker has determined all by his lonesome that the virus is only contagious after 9:30pm.
What great news!!
This has moved beyond farce and entered the territory of tragedy.
I’m astonished at how many otherwise “normal” people have internalized the fear. In February and March, OK, it was prudent to pause and see how bad this thing really was. But now? Makes no sense.
But I know people, employees, extended family, who have put off needed medical procedures, dental visits, you name it. The harm this is causing is criminal.
Lexington is really, really bad.
He did both. The SAH “advisory” is at the 1:20 time index here: https://youtu.be/V5qXgiu2FuQ
Yeah, cause the virus is not contagious during the day, only at night, right?
Someone pointed out that all the liberals they know who are terrified of the virus likely watch CNN for their news so this person decided to check out CNN’s take on it and found out why.
Me, not taking anything anyone tells me as fact without checking it out, went to the CNN website and clicked on a COVID article.
That person was right. If you listen to CNN for news and updates on COVID, you’d think we were in the middle of the Black Death plague.
he is ordering the businesses to close early,not ordering people to be in their homes.
Can you read?
Here’s a quote from Charlie the douchebag:
Were telling people to go home, and not to go to their friends house or their neighbors house or somebody else were telling them to go home, Baker said Monday during a press conference at the State House,
Has Charlie the douchebag had anything to say about the Boston Globe story about his son AJ getting drunk on a flight and sexually molesting a sleeping woman?
It’s hard to imagine this is the State where they threw tea in the harbor over a small tax.
I’m on the south shore... lots and lots of Biden signs. There is usually a “We’re all in this together” and a “Black Lives Matter” sign at the entrance to the 100 foot driveways leading to the multi-million dollars houses behind the hedges.
As Trotsky said, “useful idiots”.
They're reverting to their roots. Puritans burning witches and banning books in Boston. Make no mistake, the belief is religious.
It's the ultimate virtue signal for those trust fund types who only ever saw a black person when they were cleaning their house or doing their yard work.
I drive thru a very upper middle class area sometimes. Average houses probably go for 500k and Biden/Harris, BLM, “In this house we believe in science, etc” sign on the lawn.
