A Boston suburb is ordering everyone over two to wear face coverings in public. The order taking effect Monday in Everett comes as cities around Boston deal with a spike in coronavirus cases.

Mayor Carlo DeMaria said the new rules require masks in indoor and outdoor public spaces. Violators face a $300 fine.

Cape Cod towns are increasingly limiting capacity at beach parking lots or restricting certain beaches to residents only.
