The Massachusetts economy is being reopened using a four-phase approach, based on public health guidance, according to state officials.  Read a summary of the four-phase plan here.

Governor Charlie Baker said, “This is not permanent. At some point, there will be treatments and ultimately a vaccine. But for the foreseeable future, everyone needs to continue to do the right things to bring the fight to the virus so that we can continue to move forward.”

Lt. Governor Karyn Polito said, “People need to do their part, employers and people at home. As you take on more activities, face covering, distancing and hand-washing are key to unlocking next phases of activity.”

The Reopening Advisory Board was co-chaired by Lt. Governor Polito and  Secretary Mike Kennealy.
