Governor Charlie Baker just announced it. This was obviously what was going to happen and I don’t know why it has taken this long. You don’t need to be Nostradumbass to predict what happens next. Just look at what’s going on in the countries that are a week or two ahead of us with the pandemic.
Gov. Charlie Baker on Monday ordered all businesses and organizations that are not providing essential services to close, effective Tuesday at noon.
Baker said the order will run until April 7. All non-essential businesses will have to close their physical workspaces and facilities to customers and the public.
