“Boston will not reopen on May 4,” Mayor Martin Walsh said Monday at a briefing on progress in combating COVID-19. The city extended its March 15 stay-at-home order, due to expire on May 4, until further notice.
The mayor tweeted, “A big question on everyone’s mind is when will we re-open our city? We all want to get our economy and our society back. We all want to keep loved ones healthy and get through this safely. Those two needs go together. Public health is essential to economic recovery.”
Accordingly, Walsh said, “We are developing plans for a safe, gradual re-opening. We are working to expand testing and we are closely watching the case data. That’s what will dictate the timeline.”
He added, “Moving too quickly could set us back further. We have to be smart and do what’s best for our city in the long term.”
