At Monday's City Council meeting, Mayor Siddiqui and Vice Mayor Mallon proposed a policy order on restricting indoor activities, which would close indoor dining, gyms, casinos, and other non-essential indoor activities in Cambridge. The order was Charter Righted by Councillor Timothy Toomey, who stated that he could not support an order of “this magnitude at this hour." This policy has enormous ramifications on our businesses. As part of our ongoing effort to convene businesses and understand the situation, we devoted this week's community conversation to this subject. Matt Nelson, Assistant to the City Manager for Community Relations, attended the meeting.
