WORCESTER, CROWD. (WHDH) – Restaurant owners said they are confident that Massachusetts, which lifts COVID-19 restrictions later this month, will finally bring business back to normal levels.

Effective May 29, the state will lift its mask recommendation and allow 100 percent capacity in restaurants, Governor Charlie Baker said Monday. Bob Luz, president and CEO of the Massachusetts Restaurant Association, said the return to pre-coronavirus standards was just in time.

“This really allows us to be one step ahead of the tourist season. We don’t think it will be a national or international tourist season, but we think it will be a strong tourist season, ”said Luz. “This is the best day restaurants have had since March 14, 2020.”
