National Guard Activated To Aid With Hospital Shortage

Governor Charlie Baker is activating 500 members of the National Guard to support state hospitals that are straining under a high number of Covid cases and a staffing shortage.

He says Guard members are due a “tremendous thank you”. 

The Governor is also issuing a statewide mask advisory.

300 of those members will be trained this week to support 55 hospitals and 12 ambulance services and will report for work on Monday.
