Beginning today, Rhode Island is entering a two-week pause. These temporary restrictions are crucial to prevent overwhelming our hospital system, save lives, and avoid a more severe lockdown. You can watch the video below for a list of the rules that will be in effect during the pause, or read on to see the list in writing.
The following will remain open:
The following will be limited during the pause:
The following will be closed during this two-week pause:
Recreational venues like bowling alleys, theaters, and casinos will also be fully closed, as will indoor sporting facilities, gyms and all group fitness classes, and organized sports other than college and professional sports.
Tomorrow morning, an alert will be sent to your phones with a reminder about these new measures.
This will not be easy, but I am pleading with you to take it seriously. Choosing to gather with those outside your household will have ripple effects that will increase the strain on our hospitals and put lives at risk. Please, put health and safety first, and stay home for the next two weeks as much as possible.
We’re all in this together.
