BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you're itching to get back into the stands to cheer on your favorite team, you won't have to wait much longer.
If COVID-19 numbers keep trending in the right direction, Fenway Park will be able to welcome fans back at 12 percent capacity this season. That rule will kick in on March 22nd, which is well before the Red Sox' opening day. But it also applies to the TD Garden, where the Celtics and Bruins seasons are well underway.
Starting Monday March 1st, musicians in the Commonwealth will be able to rock their favorite venues again at 50 percent capacity up to 500 people, except in Boston.
Parents will also be able to take their kids to visit trampoline parks, laser tag arenas, and roller rinks again, except in Boston. Mayor Walsh said the City is holding off on allowing live music and increased indoor activities until March 22nd.
Also on Monday March 1st, all percentage-based capacity limits will be lifted on Massachusetts restaurants, including those in Boston. However, social distancing measures and table capacity limits will remain in place.
