Rhode Island and Massachusetts have laid out plans to gradually reopen their economies throughout the summer, which differ slightly from each other and other states’ plans.
Visitors coming from these states must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival under Gov. Gina Raimondo’s new travel restrictions, unless they’ve received an asymptomatic COVID-19 test and the results were negative.
Below is a quick guide to what’s open and what’s closed in the two states, along with details about restrictions and helpful links with more information about each activity.
PLEASE NOTE: The state mandates around each activity are changing often — sometimes daily — so check back for regular updates, as these lists will change accordingly.
