Travel During COVID

Travel increases your chances of spreading and getting COVID-19. Just as we are beginning to enjoy longer warmer days and looking forward to Spring break, rates of COVID-19 are increasing in Framingham and across the Commonwealth and our country. Effective March 22, 2021, Governor Baker replaced the MA Travel Order with a Travel Advisory. You can read the advisory here.

If you're traveling soon, please keep reading!

We want your children to be safe and healthy to attend school for the remainder of this school year. If you are preparing to travel in the coming weeks, please read the important information below to protect and keep your family healthy and travel safe.
