2021 Northeast Bible Conference

We are very pleased to host this conference in person. However, we ask you to read the attendance requirements for COVID compliance.

Currently, the Commonwealth of MA travel order remains in place. Those traveling from a designated higher-risk state (which presently includes the entire eastern seaboard) must complete the MA Travel Form, and produce a negative COVID PCR test within 72 hours of arrival in MA. This list changes regularly, so please refer to the official travel order at: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-travel-order

  • There are two exceptions to this requirement:
    • Those who tested positive in the last 90 days and have fully recovered, with no further symptoms
    • Those who have been completely vaccinated (i.e., both doses of Moderna or Pfizer or a single dose of Janssen or J&J vaccine) and have no symptoms

Without a test or a valid exception, travelers are subject to mandatory 10-day quarantine or a $500/day fine. Full details and the travel form are available through the state website: https://www.mass.gov/forms/massachusetts-travel-form
