Massachusetts has introduced new travel guidelines to help prevent new cases of coronavirus from entering the state.
All travelers to Massachusetts are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days, and if they have coronavirus symptoms, tourists are encouraged to not fly to Massachusetts. Health care, public health, public safety, transport and critical staff appointed are excluded.
In particular, order will focus on anyone arriving at Massachusetts airports or by train to South Station. All travelers will receive pamphlets encouraging them to self-quarantine for two weeks. There will also be electronic signs posted along the Mass Turnpike.
All non-essential businesses have also been ordered to close for two weeks and a stay-at-home order is in effect for the state.
State has also ordered all grocery stores and pharmacies to set aside an hour when only seniors are allowed to shop. They are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19 coronavirus disease.
