BOSTON (CBS) — Many businesses in Massachusetts are eager to learn the state’s reopening plan after being closed for months during the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Baker is expected to release details Monday.


“I am looking for clear guidelines, really clear guidelines. If you are a retail shop and you have under 2,000 feet, you’re allowed to have this many people in at a time,” said Susan Stein, owner of Fire Opal in Brookline.

According to a letter sent from the Massachusetts Municipal Association to the state’s mayors, some of the industries that could re-open Monday include manufacturing facilities, construction sites, and places of worship. The letter said the Baker administration was still finalizing the details this weekend.

Opening places of worship will have to stay at 40% capacity, attendees will have to reserve a spot online, anyone older than five must wear a mask, and anyone not in the same family must stand six feet apart, the letter also said.
