Cape Cod and all of Massachusetts moved into the next phase of reopening on April 30 more than year after the COVID-19 outbreak began. As of the end of April, the outdoor mask mandate has been eliminated. In the coming weeks, capacity limits for gatherings will increase for both indoor and outdoor venues. Street festivals, parades and beer gardens will be able to reopen. Gov. Charlie Baker also announced that as of August 1st, all industry restrictions will be lifted.
