As Massachusetts moves into the second part of Governor Charlie Baker’s four-phase re-opening plan for businesses, we’re connecting with two different communities to see how things have gone thus far.  

As a member of the governor’s reopening advisory board, Easthampton Mayor Nicole LaChapelle had a hand in creating that plan. LaChapelle spoke with Carrie Saldo about adjustments city leadership and small business owners are making to prepare for phase two, as well as how the town is ensuring there’s enough personal protective equipment for those who need it.
