Even as the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine arrive in Massachusetts, the number of cases continues to skyrocket.

And with widespread vaccination still months away, health experts and doctors say it may not be long before a total shutdown of the state’s economy becomes necessary.

Gov. Charlie Baker has said all along that he will let the public health data guide his decisions on whether to roll back reopening any further. On Sunday, a series of new restrictions went into effect, including a statewide rollback to Phase 3, Step 1 of the state’s reopening plan. New restrictions on restaurants and outdoor gatherings were also included in the latest round of COVID-19 regulations.
