A succinct summary here of what’s open and what isn’t from the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District.  Perhaps of greatest interest:


Phase II, Step One

  • Retail in-store shopping with physical distancing, occupancy limits
  • Restaurants outdoor seating only, physical distancing, reservations recommended*
  • Personal services without close personal contact – house cleaning, window washing, tutoring, etc.


Phase II, Step Two – date to be determined

  • Restaurant indoor table service
  • Personal services requiring close proximity – nail salons, etc.


*Most restaurants lack access to outdoor seating.  They may continue takeout and curbside pickup services.
