On Monday Gov. Charlie Baker held his daily briefing on coronavirus and again the Governor said that he’s not planning to issue a shelter in place or lock down.
However this time the Governor used one keyword and that was “yet.” He also said it’s too early to rule it out.
Also on Tuesday, the Governor made a shocking announcement that the coronavirus surge in the Commonwealth is expected to hit sometime between April 7 and April 17.
On the front lines, the Commonwealth has and will continue to receive shipments of personal protective equipment. Governor Baker thanked businesses like New Balance for stepping up to help manufacture face masks calling it “The truest example of the spirit that makes Massachusetts so special and what we’re so proud of.”
As for a shelter in place or lock down, again the Governor said it’s too early to rule it out and he also said “We’re not going to take any options off the table.”
The Governor said he thinks people have been doing a good job of obeying the state’s stay-at-home advisory and restrictions on non-essential businesses.
Those restrictions on non-essential businesses, the Governor could be extending and is expected to make a decision on that on Tuesday.
