TRAVEL ADVISORY

Effective: March 22, 2021

The Baker-Polito Administration has announced that the transition to Phase IV, Step 1 will indeed commence on Monday, March 22.  As part of today’s announcement, we’ve also learned that the Commonwealth’s Travel Order will be replaced with a Travel Advisory, meaning that the mandatory quarantine will no longer be in place for those entering Massachusetts.  These visitors are still urged to quarantine for 10 days but it is not a requirement.  Neither the Order nor the Advisory apply to those who are fully vaccinated, left the state for less than 24 hours, or can produce a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of arriving in MA.

Also effective Monday, event venue and public space gathering limits will increase to 100 people indoors and 150 people outdoors.  Our convention and exhibition halls may begin operating on Monday in compliance with gatherings limits and event protocols.  Large capacity sports and entertainment venues – stadiums, arenas, ballparks – will operate at 12% capacity limit and MUST first submit plans and protocols to the Department of Public Health (DPH).

Mayor Walsh just announced the details of Boston’s transition to Phase 4 starting Monday.  While the Commonwealth will move forward with 100-person indoor gathering limits, Boston will be permitting only 60 individuals to congregate at indoor venues.  For outdoor gatherings, Boston will permit 100 people as opposed to the 150 allowed by the Commonwealth.  Mayor Walsh said the goal was to lower the positive test rate to below 2.75% before further reopening measures and expanded gathering limits can occur.  Currently, the positive test rate is 3.5% in Boston.  Please review the full details of the City of Boston plan here.

The Mayor also announced that indoor performance venues (concert halls, theaters, and other seated indoor performance spaces) can open at 50% capacity, with a 500-person maximum capacity.

We also learned today that the Commonwealth is increasing the number of guests that can participate on walking tours.  This is great news as we have so many member companies across Boston and MA that operate walking tours and they are prepared to safely expand their numbers.  For more information on this update, please reference the reopening checklist for museums, tours, and historical facilities.
