Covid-19 Preparedness and Education

There are currently no travel advisories restricting travel in Western Mass.  The GSCVB is working together with the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the US Travel Association, our members and the communities we represent to provide up-to-date messaging.

US Travel has posted an emergency response toolkit for the industry, which includes facts and industry talking points, guidance for healthy travel habits, sharable graphics from the World Health Organization and a media statement.  We encourage our members to review this information.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has created a landing page to share information and updates with the public.
