As Tracy Turnblad would say in Hairspray, “Good Morning Baltimore!” Baltimore is currently in Phase 1. The city of Baltimore is working with businesses to reopen safely. It is recommended that all businesses screen their employees by checking their temperature and making sure they are feeling well before starting work. If you plan to visit Baltimore make sure to check their COVID-19 updates before visiting attractions like those at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The Inner Harbor has tons of great restaurants, museums, and fun water activities but some are closed right now. The parks and trails are a great way to take in the sights. Museums, attractions, and casinos are opened at reduced capacities. Restaurants are closed for in-person dining as of now. We recommend monitoring this city closely before visiting.
Beantown! Locals usually don’t call Boston Beantown, but it’s just so much fun to say! Boston gets its nickname from their famous baked beans, Beantown Origin. If you are traveling to Boston anytime soon, get ready to quarantine or produce a negative COVID-19 test that has been administered within 72 hours prior to your arrival under the MA COVID-19 Travel Order. Boston is currently in a modified Phase 2. Restaurants are allowed to serve indoors with a capacity of 25 guests. Be sure to put B&G Oysters on your restaurant list. Restaurants and businesses in Boston are making sure to screen all of their employees with temperature checks. They also require face masks and social distance to make sure they are keeping employees and customers safe. A great way to social distance and see the historic sites of Boston is to follow the yellow path and walk the Freedom Trail.
