Stay-at-home advisory: Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker sets curfew, requires businesses to close by 9:30 p.m. nightly ^

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.

“We’re doing much better than many other states and many other countries, but hereto we’ve 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.

I am next door in Woburn. Lexington and Winchester are filled with BLM and hate-has-no-home-here signs.
