GENERAL INFO FOR RESIDENTS AND VISITORS

On May 18, the Baker-Polito Administration released their comprehensive 4-phase approach to safely reopen the Massachusetts economy, get people back to work, and ease social restrictions while minimizing the health impacts of COVID-19. We are currently in Phase 1, under a “Safer-at-Home-Advisory“. Click here full the full Four Phase Approach to Reopening Massachusetts

    • Each phase will last a minimum of three weeks and could last longer before moving to the next phase
    • If public health data trends are negative, specific industries, regions, and/or the entire Commonwealth may need to return to an earlier phase
    • The Commonwealth will partner with industries to draft Sector-Specific Protocols in advance of future phases (example: restaurant specific protocols will be drafted in advance of Phase 2)
    • If we all work together to defeat COVID-19, we can proceed through each phase

Phase 1

    • People over the age of 65 and people who have underlying health conditions – who are at high risk for COVID-19 – should continue to stay home except for essential errands such as going to the grocery store and to attend to healthcare needs
    • All residents are advised to leave home only for healthcare, worship and permitted work, shopping, and outdoor activities
    • When going to the pharmacy ask if you can fill your prescriptions for 90 days if possible; for some medications this is not allowed. If you are at high-risk, try to use a mail-order service
    • Don’t participate in close contact activities such as pick-up sports games
    • All residents are REQUIRED to cover their face when they cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public
    • Parents should limit play dates for children
    • Refrain from visiting nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, or other residential care settings
    • All residents are advised to wash their hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soapy water
    • All residents are advised to be vigilant, monitor for symptoms and stay home if you feel sick
    • Use remote modes of communication like phone or video chat instead of visiting friends or family who are high risk for COVID-19
