PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A shelter in place order has been announced in Provincetown after two people tested positive for COVID-19.
Board of Selectmen member John Golden spoke with WBZ NewsRadio's Laurie Kirby about the decision.
"Hopefully they're going to go out for just necessary things, but they'll still be allowed to go out and exercise using the six-feet distance," Golden said.
For Provincetown, the shelter in place order still allows restaurants to provide take-out, and liquor and marijuana stores will remain open.
Both residents with confirmed cases of COVID-19 contracted the virus due to travel.
As testing has expanded, the number of coronavirus cases in Massachussetts has increased to 646.
