Janey Announces Full Timeline For Boston Reopening


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Acting Mayor Kim Janey released Boston's full reopening timeline Tuesday afternoon. Some of the city's guidelines differ from the state's by a delay of three weeks, including when bars and breweries will reopen.

Here's a breakdown of the city's timeline:

April 30:

Following the state, Boston will relax its rules on outdoor mask wearing on Friday. People will still need to wear masks outdoors at events, but can take them off when they can socially distance from others. The city will also catch up to the state by expanding capacity limits at public gatherings to 100 people indoors and 150 people outdoors. Private gatherings limits will remain at 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.

May 10:

The city will go along with the state in expanding capacity limits at outdoor stadiums and ballparks, like Fenway Park, to 25%.

June 1:

On June 1, three weeks after the rest of the state, road races and other major organized sports events can take place in Boston. Also on this date, youth and amateur sports competitions for moderate to high risk sports will be allowed.

Singing indoors will be allowed at indoor and outdoor venues, subject to the state's distancing requirements around performance venues.

June 19:

On a three-week delay, street festivals, parades, and agricultural festivals will be allowed at 50% capacity. Food will no longer be required with alcohol. Bars, beer gardens, breweries, and other alcohol-serving venues can open up for seated service, with a 90-minute table limit and no dance floor.

200 people will be allowed at indoor events, and 250 at outdoor events on this date.

August 22:

At this date, all remaining gathering restrictions on all industries will be lifted.
