Boston to End Indoor Mask Mandate (Including for Restaurants) Saturday, March 5

Last month, the City of Boston rescinded the vaccine card mandate for restaurants and bars thanks to declining Covid numbers, and this weekend, another mandate that affects dining spots (and other businesses) will be disappearing as well.

According to an article from Universal Hub, the indoor mask mandate will be lifted for most businesses--including restaurants and bars--as of Saturday, March 5, though business owners can still require people to wear masks. The mandate also applies to gyms, entertainment spots, and museums, though masks will still have to be worn in healthcare facilities, shelters, public transportation, and congregate-care facilities.

The mask mandate has been in place in Boston since last August, around the time that the Delta variant of Covid started to take hold.
