Gov. Baker announced today new COVID-19 restrictions, which will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 26 — right after Christmas. They include reducing capacity limits in businesses and house of worship to 25%, and limiting private gatherings and events to 25 people outdoors, and 10 people indoors.
"Together, the intent of these restrictions will be to pause activity and reduce mobility so that we can reduce the spread of the virus without closing our schools or our businesses," the Governor said at a press conference this afternoon.
With these new restrictions and a flurry of activity around the police reform bill in the background, we turn to WBUR's Steve Brown.
