COVID-19 Guidelines for Summer Conference

  1. Vaccination and Testing Required: The MTA is requiring that participants attending the Summer Conference to show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID 19 test taken within 48 hours of their arrival on campus.
  2. Read About the ReturnSafe App

  3. Masks: Masks must also be worn at all times, and social distancing is encouraged to the extent possible.

  4. Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability: As COVID-19 continues to be contagious and transmissible mainly from person-to-person contact, MTA has put in place preventative measures at this event to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, MTA cannot guarantee that participants in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19. By willingly attending and voluntarily participating in the MTA Summer Conference on July 28-August 3, 2022, at UMass Amherst, participants must acknowledge the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19 when attending large gatherings and assume the risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

If you have a bona fide medical or religious exemption to the COVID-19 vaccination requirement, please contact immediately for alternate health and safety requirements for attendance.
