Boston Strong news – Boston, MA: Office of the Mayor reports 3.20.2020.

To help curtail the spread of COVID-19, Governor Charlie Baker and Mayor Martin Walsh have ordered all restaurants to restrict operations to takeout and delivery only until April 6, 2020. We know that this places an immense hardship on Boston’s food establishments and small businesses. In support of local restaurants, we are installing temporary takeout food pickup zones by request throughout the City of Boston.

Takeout food pickup zones restrict parking to five minutes to:

  • increase convenience for the quick pickup and delivery of takeout food from restaurants, and
  • provide adequate room for social distancing of six feet or more.
