Massachusetts' Step Two, Phase Two Of Reopening Begins Monday

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Close-contact industries in Massachusetts can open up again this week.

This includes nails salons and indoor dining at restaurants, as well as allowing businesses to increase their capacity of all employees from 25% to 50%.

Although the MBTA is boosting service to accommodate, Governor Charlie Baker still expressed caution about taking public transit.

"The T has worked hard to adjust schedules and practice heightened cleaning protocols for high-touch surfaces," Baker said. "But the best way to prevent the spread is to minimize the number of people being in close quarters."

Baker also encouraged businesses to continue allowing employees to work from home.
