Governor Baker announced Tuesday that Massachusetts would increase some restrictions in the face of the state’s coronavirus surge, including the closure of indoor performance venues, a mask requirement at all gyms, and a 40-percent capacity limit for nearly every business. Baker noted the difficulty of the decision, because of its effect on businesses and workers. But several town and city leaders argued in a joint op-ed for Commonwealth Magazine this week that "we do not have to accept the false choice between protecting people’s lives and protecting their livelihoods." To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by two co-authors of the piece, Joe Curtatone of Somerville and Yvonne Spicer of Framingham.
