More on the Coronavirus in Massachusetts
Earlier in the day, Gov. Charlie Baker announced that the state will relax coronavirus restrictions on restaurants starting Monday, increasing the number of people allowed per table from six to 10 and allowing establishments to use bar seating for food service.
The changes come as approaching colder weather makes outdoor dining less viable.
Bars and nightclubs remain closed until Phase 4 of the state's reopening, which isn't expected to happen until a vaccine has been achieved.
