MA Gov Extends “Stay-At-Home” Order Thru May 4th

NBC Boston reports:

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has extended the state’s stay-at-home advisory and an executive order requiring all non-essential businesses to close through May 4.

“These actions will improve our ability to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” he said, noting the “high cost” the measures have taken on residents and business owners.

“If we can limit face-to-face, person-to-person contact now, we can slow the spread and get back to work as soon and as safely as we possibly can,” Baker said.
