Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker ordered the activation of up to 2,000 National Guard members across the state. They will be tasked with supporting requests from state agencies to assist with logistics and supply work.
"Activating the National Guard will help support our Administration’s efforts to keep residents safe and secure during the COVID-19 outbreak," Baker said. "The expertise of the Massachusetts National Guard will benefit our communities with logistical support and other assistance as we continue to respond to this crisis."
