Reopening Massachusetts Plan Released

The Baker-Polito Administration released a comprehensive plan to safely reopen the Massachusetts economy, get people back to work, and ease social restrictions while minimizing the health impacts of COVID-19.

Massachusetts has been one of the hardest hit states in the U.S., with over 86,000 confirmed cases and 5,700 deaths through May 17, 2020.

On March 23, 2020 Governor Baker issued an executive order closing all non-essential businesses across the Commonwealth in order to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

In combating COVID-19, the Baker-Polito administration has:

  • In partnership with healthcare providers and municipalities, conducted more than 460,000 COVID-19 tests, making Massachusetts a top-5 per capita tester
  • Launched a national model for contact tracing
  • Committed over $1 billion in funding to support our health care system
  • Distributed more than 10.5 million pieces of personal protective equipment
