Today, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito announced the release of Reopening Massachusetts – The Baker-Polito Administration’s comprehensive plan to safely reopen the Massachusetts economy, get people back to work, and ease social restrictions while minimizing the health impacts of COVID-19.
Also released today was a comprehensive state web platform that will be updated as additional industry sectors are allowed to open. The report and the new webpage provide information to help businesses meet the state’s required self-certification requirement to reopen.
Please note that the City of New Bedford is reviewing these new workplace rules and will have an announcement on how this will be applied in New Bedford later this week. Until then, the City’s orders concerning industrial facilities remains in effect.
