Cambridge will go along with Gov. Charlie Baker’s decision to relax mask requirements when people are outdoors and can safely distance, the city announced Thursday. The city will also move into Phase IV, Step 1, of the governor’s reopening plan, which the state had authorized March 22.
City manager Louis DePasquale strongly hinted Monday that Cambridge will relax some Covid-19 restrictions on businesses because of declining cases and increasing vaccinations. At the same time, the city announced another death from Covid-19, bringing the total to 122 residents.
