Massachusetts

BOSTON (AP/WPRI) — Gyms in Boston are welcoming back members and the iconic duck boat tours are rolling again as the city enters the third phase of its coronavirus economic restart.

Boston begins Phase 3 Monday a week after most of Massachusetts, allowing museums, movie theaters, historical sites and gyms to reopen with certain restrictions.

The New England Aquarium and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum are among those expected to reopen.

All three casinos in Massachusetts have reopened.

Gov. Charlie Baker also launched a new website to make it easier for people to report businesses that aren’t following health regulations.
