波士頓市長匯報開放腳步要比麻州慢三星期

波士頓代市長Kim Janey。
                 (Boston Orange)麻州政府預定430(週五)起,恢復開放步驟推進至第四階段第二步驟。波士頓市長Kim Janey27日表示,波士頓市需做特別準備,三星期後再跟進開放腳步。

              波士頓市三月底時說過,直到波士頓市確診率連續兩週保持在2.75%之前,不考慮進一步開放。目前,波士頓市的確診率為3.6%,波士頓市將根據公共健康數據來訂定重新開放的指導原則。

             截至420日,33.1%的波士頓人已完整注射新冠疫苗,55.1%已至少接種了一劑新冠疫苗。波士頓市所有社區的確診率持續下降至3.6%,但東波士頓,多徹斯特及羅森岱爾(Roslindale)3個社區的確診略微高於5%。上星期,新出現的確診檢測比率也減少了34%,平均每天有144宗新的確診個案。可用的成人重症病床數量穩定。波士頓上週有2宗死亡病例。

             波士頓代市長Kim Janey表示,在重新開放上,波士頓會在適當時機採取適當辦法,以保護人民及企業。大家必須知道,新冠病毒疫情還沒過去,重新開放經濟,並不表示大家可以放下警惕心。

             430日起,波士頓市會配合麻州政府,放寬戴口罩規定。這表示,在公共空間中,和其他人能保持安全社交距離時,不必戴口罩,但是除了吃喝時之外,其他所有時候,人們仍然需要戴口罩。州市政府也建議人們在戶外或室內的小型聚會時,仍然戴口罩。

             430日起,波士頓市內的公眾聚會人數,可以增加到室內100人,戶外150人。在波士頓市內,在私人住宅舉行的所有私人聚會及活動,人數限制仍為室內10人,戶外25人。

             619日起,波士頓市內的公眾及私人聚會人數限制,將放寬為室內200人,戶外250人。這部分的開放腳步,比麻州政府慢三星期。

             在室內及戶外體育館部分,波士頓市和麻州政府同步,從510日起,容許營運量增至25%

             波士頓市政府計畫准許下列行業從61日起,在某些容量及安全辦法限制下,重新開放。

             路賽,以及其他大型戶外組織的業餘或專業團體的體育活動。

             中高危險等級的青年及成人業餘運動比賽

             在表演場所,餐廳,活動場所及其他企業的室內演唱,將根據麻州的劇院及表演場所指導原則辦理。

             波士頓市計畫從619日開始,准許下列行業重新開放或營業:

             街頭節慶,遊行,農業節慶等可以在50%的容量下進行

             酒吧,啤酒園,釀酒店,酒廠及蒸餾場只可提供有座位服務,並且有逗留90分鐘的限制。不可開放舞池。

             飲酒不再規定須配食物,10人可同坐一桌。

             如果波士頓市內的所有健康數據持續顯示安全,822日起,限制將解除。,所有行業都可100%的營運。

                       仍然維持在第四階段第二步驟的企業包括跳舞俱樂部,夜總會,桑拿店,熱水浴池,蒸氣室,健康俱樂部,球坑等,也將於822日起可以重新開放。

           波士頓市長經濟發展辦公室將於430(週五)下午2點,以及55(週三)的早上8點半,舉辦2場研討會,更新重新開放指導原則。每週二下午3點,主持小企業叩應活動。每週五的早上9點至11點,以及下午24點是波士頓企業辦公室時間。查詢相關細節可上網,boston.gov/smallbusiness

MAYOR JANEY ANNOUNCES UPDATES TO CITY OF BOSTON’S REOPENING GUIDANCE

Modified and delayed guidance of the latest phase of Reopening Massachusetts plan will allow the City of Boston to prepare for industry-specific needs

 

BOSTON - Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - Mayor Janey today announced that the City of Boston will move into a modified version of the state’s current phase of the Reopening Massachusetts plan, effective Friday, April 30. The City of Boston will delay most of the state’s reopening guidance announced today by three weeks, in an effort to accommodate the unique preparations needed by the City. In late March, the City announced that it would not move forward with additional reopening steps until the citywide positivity rate remained at or below 2.75 percent for two consecutive weeks. It is currently at 3.6 percent. However, given improved trends in the positivity rate and other COVID-19 public health metrics, the City will move cautiously to advance reopening efforts. The latest modified update will support Boston’s economic recovery as COVID-19 health metrics continue to improve. All reopening guidance will be subject to current COVID-19 public health data.

As of April 20, 2021, 33.1 percent of Bostonians are fully vaccinated; 55.1 percent have received at least one dose. The citywide community positivity rate continues to decrease, dropping to 3.6 percent, with three neighborhoods slightly above the 5.0 percent threshold (East Boston, Dorchester and Roslindale). New positive tests in the City of Boston decreased by 34 percent over the past week, averaging 144 new positive tests per day. The percentage of available adult ICU beds remains stable, and the percentage of non-surge ICU beds continues to be below the City’s threshold. Boston has had two reported deaths in the past week. 

“In every aspect of Boston's reopening, we will take the right measures, at the right time, to protect our people and businesses,” said Mayor Janey. “As we look ahead to better days, we must remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over. Reopening our economy does not remove our personal and collective responsibility to remain vigilant. Thank you to all Bostonians for your continued efforts and cooperation as we reopen our city.”

Effective Friday, April 30, the City of Boston will align with Commonwealth’s updated Face Coverings Order. This states that face coverings will be required at all times at indoor and outdoor venues and events, except when eating or drinking. Face coverings are recommended to be worn both inside and outside during small gatherings at private homes. Face coverings are not required outside in public spaces when individuals are able to remain at a safe distance from others.

Also effective April 30, public gatherings in Boston may increase to 100 people indoors and 150 people outdoors, in alignment with the Commonwealth's previously announced limits. In Boston, all private gatherings and events in private residences will remain subject to current capacity limits of 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. However, public and private gathering limits will increase to 200 people indoors and 250 people outdoors on June 19 in Boston, three weeks after the higher limits go into effect in other parts of the Commonwealth. The City of Boston and the Boston Public Health Commission will continue to closely monitor public health data and adjust reopening plans as necessary.

The City of Boston will align with the Commonwealth’s updated guidance for indoor and outdoor stadiums, arenas and ballparks, allowing capacity to increase to 25 percent, effective May 10.

The City of Boston plans to allow the following industries to reopen or resume June 1, subject to certain capacity limits and safety measures, three weeks after the Commonwealth will allow for their reopening in other parts of the state:

·     Road races and other large, outdoor organized amateur or professional group athletic events

·     Youth and adult amateur sports tournaments for moderate and high-risk sports

·     Singing indoors at performance venues, restaurants, event venues and other businesses, subject to the Commonwealth’s Theater and Performance Venue guidance

The City of Boston plans to allow the following industries to reopen or resume starting June 19, subject to certain capacity limits and safety measures, three weeks after the Commonwealth will allow for their reopening in other parts of the state:

·     Street festivals, parades and agricultural festivals, at 50 percent capacity

·     Bars, beer gardens, breweries, wineries and distilleries for seated-service only, subject to a 90-minute table limit, and no dance floors.

·     Food will no longer be required with alcohol service, and 10 people can be seated at a table.

If public health metrics support continued safe reopening in Boston, effective August 22, industry restrictions will be lifted, and 100 percent capacity will be allowed for all industries. This would be three weeks after the Commonwealth takes this step in other parts of the state. Remaining Phase Four, Step Two industries and businesses, including dance clubs and nightclubs; saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, and health clubs; and ball pits, would be allowed to reopen on August 22 in Boston. All businesses will be expected to adhere to ongoing safety guidance, and mask wearing will continue to be required indoors.

The Mayor’s Office of Economic Development (OED) will also hold two upcoming webinars about updated reopening guidance on Friday, April 30th at 2:00 p.m. and Wednesday, May 5th at 8:30 a.m. OED also hosts weekly small business calls every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m.and Reopen Boston Business Office Hours every Friday 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. These meetings ensure business owners, customers, and workers have access to all of the guidance and details necessary to return safely, as Boston reopens.

All of this guidance is subject change based on evolving COVID-19 public health metrics. For more information about reopening in Boston, visit boston.gov/reopening. For more information about the state’s reopening plan, visit mass.gov/reopening.
