[ARCHIVED] REMINDER: New MA Travel Order in Effect

State COVID Updates

A new travel order for all visitors and returning residents to Massachusetts is now in effect.

These restrictions require that all visitors and any Massachusetts residents returning to the Commonwealth must: 

  • Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival, unless you are visiting from a lower-risk state as designated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Current lower-risk states include all New England states, New Jersey, New York, and Hawaii. 
  • Quarantine for 14 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72-hours prior to your arrival in Massachusetts.

If a COVID-19 test result has not been received prior to arrival, visitors, and residents must quarantine until they receive a negative test result.

Failure to comply may result in a $500 fine per day.

The Town of Wellesley is encouraging all residents to heed these restrictions, continue to wear masks, and remain safe.
