Well in Mass the governor declared a state of emergency at noon and all non essential traffic is banned from public roads after 4:00 pm. You can be fined up to $500 and/or get jail time for violating the ban. The government has a lot of authority once the declare a state of emergency.
Now will they actually issue fines or jail someone? Likely some bone heads will be out and about for no good reason and will be. If you are just trying to get home likely not.
