Massachusetts Fully Reopens On Saturday. Here's What You Can Do.

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Massachusetts will fully reopen Saturday, dropping all of its COVID-19 restrictions and a state-wide mask mandate.

All capacity restrictions on all businesses will be lifted, as will the indoor and outdoor gathering limits that were put in place throughout the pandemic. That means you'll be able to go to a game at Fenway and T.D. Garden this summer with a full house.

Breweries, beer gardens and wineries will be able to reopen, as will bars that don't serve food, with no capacity or spacing restrictions. Nightclubs and other similar venues will also reopen.

Current restaurant rules, like only being able to stay for 90 minutes, will go out the window, and street festivals and parades will also be allowed again.

The state's mask mandate on and after May 29 is a little more complicated. Although the mask mandate will drop for both indoor and outdoor settings on Saturday, there are several places where people will still need to wear a mask: public and private transportation (think the T, Commuter Rail, rideshares, and taxis), healthcare providers like hospitals, congregate care settings, and K-12 schools.

Individual businesses can still decide to require masks even after the state drops its mandate Saturday.
