BOSTON – Today, April 27, the Baker-Polito Administration announced that Massachusetts will reopen some outdoor Phase 4, Step 2 industries effective May 10 but some businesses will still have to wait until August 1 to re-open.

Massachusetts remains first in the nation for first vaccine doses and total doses administered per capita, among states with more than 5 million people.

The Administration will also relax the Face Coverings Order for some outdoor settings, effective April 30.

Effective August 1, and subject to public health and vaccination data, remaining industries will be permitted to open including:

  • Dance clubs, and nightclubs
  • Saunas, hot-tubs, steam rooms at fitness centers, health clubs and other facilities
  • Indoor water parks
  • Ball pits

All industry restrictions will be lifted at that time, and capacity will increase to 100% for all industries, with businesses encouraged to continue following best practices. The gathering limit will be rescinded.

Depending on vaccine distribution and public health data, the Administration may consider re-evaluating the August 1 date.

The Department of Public Health will also continue to issue guidance as needed, including guidance to still require masks indoors.
