UPDATED GUIDANCE

In an effort to reduce the further spread of COVID-19 and its impact on Boston’s health care system and essential services, Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced that effective Wednesday, December 16, the City of Boston will return back to a modified Phase Two, Step Two of the Reopening Massachusetts plan. Boston has been experiencing a steady increase in COVID-19 cases among its residents since Thanksgiving, with the citywide positive test rate at 7.2 percent for the week ending on December 6, 2020, up from 5.2 percent for the prior week. The percentage of occupied adult non-surge ICU beds at Boston hospitals is at 90 percent as of December 10, 2020.

Returning to a modified Phase Two, Step Two requires the closure of certain businesses designated as Phase Three. Gatherings in private and public settings are required to have no more than 10 people for indoor settings and 25 people for outdoor settings.

#TakeTheTestBoston

Boston and our country are facing an increase in COVID-19 positive rates, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the spring. As we head into the months ahead, it’s critical we all come together to look out for one another and our community, and take steps to stop the spread of COVID-19.

A key part of stopping the spread is testing. While earlier this year tests were hard to come by, Boston has expanded access to testing, and we are now encouraging all residents to get tested -- and especially those who are going outside their home for work or other reasons. But there’s a problem: not enough people are taking advantage of our resources and getting tested. Residents with no symptoms can still be infected with COVID-19 and transmit the virus, according to the CDC. We need more residents to get tested, and those that are interacting with others in any setting should consider getting tested on a regular basis. For that reason, we are inviting all Boston employers to take a pledge in support of increasing testing access for their employees.

We encourage businesses and employers throughout Boston to join us, by making sure their employees know when to get tested, how to get tested, and have access to the resources they need to take care of their own and our collective public health. Take the pledge to #GetTheTestBoston, and provide the resources your employees need to get tested, stop the spread of COVID-19, and avoid a setback in our reopening process.
