Mayor Arrigo Joins El Planeta for Facebook Live, Highlighting Multilingual Outreach Campaign – Stay Home, Save Lives
The City of Revere’s Emergency Response Team continues to take proactive steps to slow community transmission of COVID-19 and prepare for further spread of the virus. As of today, April 2, 2020, the Revere Board of Health has been notified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health of 194 positive cases of COVID-19 in the City of Revere.
Today Governor Baker issued an emergency order to implement additional measures to limit overcrowding and reduce risks at state parks and beaches, including Revere Beach State Reservation. The order prohibits:
- All sitting, sunbathing and other stationary recreational activities
- Athletic and recreational activities that bring participants into close, physical contact
- On-street parking along the ocean side of Revere Beach Boulevard
These restrictions support the City’s efforts to reduce activity and congestion along Revere Beach. Since March 28, all restaurants along Revere Beach Boulevard have voluntarily shifted to delivery-only or closed.
“I want to thank Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito for continuing to work closely with our team to address public safety concerns at Revere Beach and supporting us in protecting our residents,” Mayor Arrigo said. “Revere Beach continues to be an area where we are seeing groups of people congregating and not abiding by social distancing guidelines. We are doing everything we can to make sure our residents understand that staying at home will save lives.”
