Charlie Baker said : “This team will coordinate an increased enforcement effort across the state to ensure businesses and residents are aware of and are following the COVID-19 orders.

This will be different in every town, but it will include things like helping a town access additional federal relief funds if circumstances warrant it. It will also likely include significant assistance to ramp up enforcement with respect to businesses, face coverings and gathering orders” External link

And I’m deeply concerned about the issues associated with kids who actually need to learn how to read. We’ve talked a lot about the fact that kids need to read at a certain level by they time they get to third, to fourth grade. The way we teach kids how to read, historically, has been very much an in-person and hands-on activity” External link

Charlie Baker said : “This team will coordinate an increased enforcement effort across the state to ensure businesses and residents are aware of and are following the COVID-19 orders. By authorizing state and local police to enforce these orders, we can not only increase the number of people who will be out there and able to enforce these measures, but also ensure that there are penalties for those who refuse to make the adjustments that so many other people in Massachusetts have made and continue to make,” “Secondly, the COVID-19 Command Center will identify higher-risk communities that we can work with collaboratively to help them deal with their outbreaks. This will be different in every town, but it will include things like helping a town access additional federal relief funds if circumstances warrant it. It will also likely include significant assistance to ramp up enforcement with respect to businesses, face coverings and gathering orders” External link

And I’m deeply concerned about the issues associated with kids who actually need to learn how to read. We’ve talked a lot about the fact that kids need to read at a certain level by they time they get to third, to fourth grade.
