BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — More municipal and government buildings are lifting Covid-19 restrictions in the city of Boston.

Starting on Monday, visitors will no longer need to have an appointment before going to City Hall in person.

It comes the same day as the state's courts lift capacity limits in courtrooms and restrictions on jury trials.

Despite the changes, people will still be required to wear a face covering when entering those buildings and some court proceedings will still be conducted virtually.

Some cases that normally have 12-member juries will also still go before a six-member jury to help courts work through a backlog of cases, and attorneys will still have limits on challenging some jurors.

Meanwhile, the city of Somerville is also opening it's public buildings to the public on Monday -- including the Central Library and the East Branch.

Face masks are still required in those buildings for both staff and visitors.
