麻州長下令 5/6起出入公眾場合應戴口罩

(Boston Orange編譯)麻州州長查理貝克(Charlie Baker)(1)日中午宣佈,56日起,州民在公共場合須戴口罩,或蒙住臉鼻,以防止病毒傳播。麻州新增了5個病毒檢測站,現在全州有19個地點可做檢測。
查理貝克今日下午1點半在州政府大樓的每日疫情匯報中,宣佈前述命令,要求2歲以上民眾出門在外時,如果無法和人保持安全社交距離,就要戴口罩,或蒙住臉鼻。
這一命令將取代之前公佈的有關使用口罩指南,並適用於作為基本必要企業,目前開張營運的所有企業之員工及其顧客,例如雜貨店,藥店,零售店等。居民搭乘公共交通工具時,也必須全程戴口罩,或遮住臉鼻。
查理貝克勸諭民眾把醫用口罩留給醫護及第一線工作人員,遮住臉鼻的物品,可以是口罩,圍巾或頭巾。2歲以下或有呼吸困難問題人士,不應該用布口罩。
州政府在新聞稿中還提供了美國疾病防治中心提供的自製布口罩指南(https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html)
查理貝克也說明,州政府和Quest診療所,以及麻州社區健康中心聯盟合作之外,新增加了5個病毒檢測站。全州各地現在總共有19個新型冠狀病毒檢測站。
新增加的病毒檢測站為Lynn社區健康中心,Holyoke健康中心,北岸社區健康中心,南波士頓社區健康中心,以及Franklin郡社區健康中心。
根據波士頓環球報,緬因州(Maine)和康州(Connecticut)早就已經規定民眾在公共場合必須戴口罩。佛蒙特州及羅德島州則要求工作人員戴口罩。新罕布夏州並無任何戴口罩規定。
波士頓環球報在報導中表示,該報檢視發現,全州將近有60個市鎮都已發佈要求居民戴口罩。大部分是規定進雜貨店,藥店,或其他基本服務企業時必須戴。
有些市鎮,規定得更嚴格。包括布魯克蘭鎮(Brookline),尚莫維爾市(Somerville),以及劍橋市要求在戶外公共空間也要戴口罩。ArlingtonHolliston還要求跑步,騎自行車的人也戴口罩。
包括大理石頭(Marblehead) and溫卓普(Winthrop),琵琶地(Peabody)等市鎮,還以重罰高至1000元來警告。Salem鎮罰300元。

Baker-Polito Administration Orders Use of Mask or Face Covering in Public, Announces Increased Community Health Center COVID-19 Testing Capacity

BOSTON – The Baker-Polito Administration today issued an order requiring the use of masks or face coverings in public places where they cannot socially distance from others. The Administration also announced expanded community health center COVID-19 testing capacity at centers throughout the Commonwealth.

Mask and Face Covering Order: The Baker-Polito Administration has ordered all residents over the age of two to use a face covering or mask in public places where maintaining proper social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are not possible. This statewide order goes into effect on May 6th and supersedes previously issued guidance relative to mask use. 

This order applies to all workers and customers of businesses and other organizations that are currently open to the public and permitted to operate as COVID-19 Essential Businesses, such as grocery stores, pharmacies and other retail stores. Residents are also required to wear a mask or face covering at all times when using any means of transportation service or public mass transit.

A face covering may include anything that covers your nose and mouth, including a mask, scarf or bandana. Health care masks should not be used and should be preserved for health care workers and first responders. Cloth masks should not be worn by young children under the age of two, persons with difficulty breathing, or those who are unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. Instructions on how to make a cloth mask are available from the CDC here.


Community Health Care Center COVID-19 Testing: In continued partnership with Quest Diagnostics and the Mass League of Community Health Centers, the Baker-Polito Administration today announced further expansion of COVID-19 testing at additional centers throughout the Commonwealth.

This testing expansion builds upon the previously announced increased testing, bringing the total to 18 Community Health Centers. The new facilities that will begin or expand testing include:

  • Lynn Community Health Center

  • Holyoke Health Center

  • North Shore Community Health Center

  • South Boston Community Health Center

  • Community Health Center of Franklin County
