Phase Three Of Reopening Begins In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Phase Three of reopening in Massachusetts has been referred to as the 'vigilant' stage.

It is broken down into two parts, allowing museums, movie theaters, gyms and casinos can reopen and allow people in, with some restrictions.

Governor Charlie Baker said this phase will last longer than previous stages because it is the riskiest. He detailed some of the precautions going into it:

Indoor gatherings will be limited to eight people per thousand square feet, but should should not include more than 25 people in a single enclosed, indoor space. Outdoor gatherings in enclosed spaces are limited to 25 percent of a facility's permitted occupancy with a maximum of 100 people.

Professional sports teams will be holding games without an audience.

The cities of Boston and Somerville however, will not begin phase three until next week.
