            (Boston Orange 周菊子波士頓報導) 麻州州長查理貝克(Charlie Baker)剛剛宣佈,1226日起縮緊防疫規定。在為期約二週的時間內,絕大部分企業營運需降至正常的25%,所有活動的群聚人數,限戶外25人,室內10人以下。

             新規定將從1226日起生效,直至2021110日止。

             查理貝克再次強調,源自感恩節經驗,為防止聖誕節、新年假期造成更多人感染新冠病毒(COVID-19),希望所有州民遵守新規定,以遏制病毒散佈,好讓醫護系統及學校,社區可以保持開放。

             麻州副州長白莉朵(Karyn Polito)進一步說明,餐館,戲院,表演場所,個人服務,賭場,辦公室,教堂或崇拜所,零售店,駕校,飛行學校,高爾夫球場,圖書館,健身房,博物館等等,全都適用於新規定,

             不過餐館,個人服務,教堂,諸如雜貨店等零售地點的營運工作人員,不包括計算在這25%,以及戶外25人,室內10人的限制中。

             麻州公共衛生廳廳長Marylou Sudders表示,新的臨時限制,將也適用於醫療業。除非會對病人造成極大危險,麻州內所有醫院必須推遲或取消所有非必要,可選擇的住院手術。
