BOSTON — Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced on Tuesday that the state’s stay-at-home advisory will be extended through Monday, May 18. That advisory was originally set to expire on Monday, May 4 before the governor made his announcement at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
In addition to the stay-at-home-advisory extension, the governor also announced that the state would be extending its closures of non-essential businesses through May 18 as well.
Also pushed back to May 18 is the state’s ban on gatherings of 10 or more people.
A 17-person group of local leaders is set to meet over a Zoom call to figure out how to reopen the state. Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera was one of the people picked to be in that group because of his experience with the Merrimack Valley Gas Explosion crisis.
