The state economy is now in Phase 3 of a four-phase reopening plan. The fourth phase - which would see the reopening of business such as amusement parks, spectator sports venues, bars, and nightclubs - is not slated to launch until after there is a treatment or vaccine for COVID-19.

Since the start of the pandemic, 1.3 million people in Massachusetts have been tested for COVID-19 and there have been 1.06 million cases of infection confirmed statewide.

As of July 17: 557 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 in Massachusetts and six hospitals were operating at surge capacity, the governor said.
