BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP)–Massachusetts widely reopened its economy early in July, but less than a month later, there’s an increasing sense of dread that the hard-hit state’s respite from the pandemic ultimately will be fleeting.

But Republican Gov. Charlie Baker argues that the state’s recent uptick in cases can be attributed to a handful individuals not practicing proper virus safety etiquette and causing outbreaks – not his reopening plan
