Scale Back Reopening

68 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

Dear Governor Baker, Massachusetts coronavirus transmission rates are surging and COVID-19 hospitalizations are increasing. We are seeing a rapid expansion in the number of “Red Zones”. The October 5th order relaxing restrictions on indoor gathering size remains in effect, increasing the risk of super-spreader events, but the high community transmission rates have led to full remote learning for Boston Public Schools. Initially, Massachusetts was a leader in taking decisive action in line with public health guidance to save lives. However, other states have taken recent actions to curb rising infection rates, but Massachusetts has not. Maintaining Phase 3 reopening is jeopardizing our health, the reopening of our schools, and our economy. Protecting our economic health and community health are not mutually exclusive. If we do not mitigate this surge now, we could be heading for another shutdown and the resultant economic fallout. I urge you to exemplify the leadership you demonstrated earlier this year: please scale back reopening, enforce mask mandates, expand our testing capabilities and prioritize our schools to avert another economic and public health crisis. Sincerely,

First sent on October 25, 2020 by The COVID-19 Action Coalition
