BOSTON — Today, Governor Charlie Baker announced a new set of initiatives aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19 in Massachusetts, especially in higher risk communities that have seen a recent uptick in cases. While Massachusetts has seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations since May, there has been a slight uptick in certain communities in recent days.

Today, the Administration announced a set of initiatives, including stricter statewide rules for public and private gatherings and targeted community guidance. The Administration also announced that, starting next week, additional reporting for town-by-town data will be published weekly to show the spread of COVID-19 at a community level. Additionally, previously announced free COVID-19 testing in 17 communities has been extended through September 12.

Statewide Guidance: 

Governor Baker is signing an updated gatherings order, effective Tuesday, August 11,  which will:

  • Reduce the limit on outdoor gatherings from 100 to 50 people (indoor gatherings limit will remain at 25 people)
  • Apply these limits to all types of gatherings, on both public and private property
  • Require face coverings where more than 10 people from different households will be mixing.

Due to the recent increase in positive cases, step two of phase III of the Commonwealth’s reopening plan has been postponed indefinitely.

Restaurant rules have been updated to state that alcoholic beverages may only be served for on-site consumption if accompanied by orders for food prepared on-site. The administration will be taking measures to ensure that bars masquerading as restaurants will be closed.

Public safety officials, including state and local law enforcement, have the jurisdiction to enforce these orders and event hosts in violation of these orders will be subject to fines or cease and desist orders.

Dear Customers & Friends,

During this uncertain time, we are committed to ensuring our customers and team are safe and healthy, and this will be our highest priority as we continue to monitor the developments as related to COVID-19.

As part of our daily operations we have implemented “best practices” in which every hour employees are washing their hands, sanitizing common surface areas table tops and all door handles & doorways.  Additional hand sanitizer dispensers are readily available for staff and customers to use at their discretion.

As colleges and universities suspend on-campus classes, many companies allowing employees to work from home and most events cancelling, we have decided to make some significant changes to our weekend events in order to still be able to help keep some normalcy during this difficult time for everyone.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our business.

Kevin & Kristin Murphy
