Reopening Health and Human Services in Massachusetts

Health and Human Services reopening plans and guidance

Reopening Massachusetts was the four-phase approach to responsibly reopen Massachusetts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the phased reopening, based on public health guidance, was to progressively allow certain services and activities to resume, while protecting public health, limiting a resurgence of new COVID-19 cases and ensuring the Massachusetts’ health care system had the capacity to address the pandemic.

On May 29, 2021, the Commonwealth lifted COVID-19 restrictions while maintaining necessary COVID-19 prevention and mitigation measures in certain settings, including in health care settings. Health care providers should continue to adhere to all applicable service, program, or sector-specific guidance available on the state COVID-19 guidance website.
