Massachusetts Implements Coronavirus-Related Business Curfew that Requires Adult-Use Cannabis Sales to End at 9:30 p.m.


Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has issued an executive order to implement a coronavirus-related business curfew that requires all adult-use cannabis sales to end at 9:30 p.m., according to a report.

Medical cannabis sales can continue past the curfew under the order, which went into effect Nov. 6, the news outlet reported.

The rules are part of a new stay-at-home advisory, which aims to address a second wave of COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts, according to

Other businesses, including table service at restaurants, must also close at 9:30 p.m. under the order, and all Massachusetts residents have been instructed to stay home between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. daily with certain exceptions like grocery shopping or receiving health care, reported.

At the beginning of the coronavirus crisis in Massachusetts, Baker classified adult-use cannabis businesses as non-essential businesses in the state’s initial COVID-19 response, forcing non-medical dispensaries to shut down for roughly two months. Adult-use retailers were permitted to re-open with curbside pickup services in May.
