Mass. Department of Public Health lifts ban on reusable bags
The Department of Public Health Friday lifted a statewide ban on the use of reusable bags at grocery stores -- ending an order imposed early in the coronavirus pandemic as a public health measure. On March 25, the state health department ordered retailers to ban reusable bags as part of efforts to slow the coronavirus’s spread, after several communities, including Cambridge, made the move. The state measure was imposed out of concern that reusable bags could help move the virus around and increase the chance of new infections. Dr. Monica Bharel, the state commissioner of public health, rescinded that ban on July 10, according to a copy of her decision posted to the state website. She also rescinded a separate order from April that included occupancy limitations for grocery stores.

While we are not all in the same boat, we are all trying to weather the same storm.

Few companies do an annual budget and even fewer develop a detailed playbook that identifies where they are going and how to get there. However, the playbook is necessary for leaders to establish clear focus, reduce risks, and create a real competitive advantage that guides the business to defined success.
