What's Open in Boston

You MissedThis Boston

Relive your favorite experiences while discovering new ways to explore our diverse and vibrant city.  It's the Boston you've been missing and we are ready to welcome you back!

Commonwealth of Massachusetts Reopening Plan

Effective May 29 all industry restrictions have been lifted with 100% capacity allowed.  Gathering limits have expired and sector-specific protocols have been rescinded.  With the exception of remaining face-covering requirements for public and private transportation systems and facilities housing vulnerable populations, all industry restrictions have been lifted.

City of Boston Reopening Plan

Aligning with the state's reopening plan, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted as of May 29.

City of Cambridge Reopening Plan

The City of Cambridge has lifted remaining COVID-19 restrictions as of May 29.

Face Covering Guidance

In line with updated CDC face covering guidance, the Administration has rescinded the current face covering order and has issued a new face covering advisory effective May 29.

Non-vaccinated individuals are advised to continue wearing face masks and to continue distancing in most settings. The advisory will also recommend fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a face covering or social distance indoors or outdoors except for in certain situations.

Face coverings will still be required for all individuals on public and private transportation (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), healthcare facilities and providers, congregate care settings and health and rehabilitative day services.

Out-of-State Travel Advisory

All non-exempt visitors and returning residents entering Massachusetts must follow the MA COVID-19 Travel Advisory.  Travelers who are fully vaccinated (i.e. who have received two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines OR who have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 14 days or more ago) and who do not have symptoms are exempt from the Advisory.
