COVID-19 Guidelines

(UPDATED 9/20/2021) Epilepsy Foundation New England (EFNE) is dedicated to supporting public health and ensuring that our most vulnerable walkers are able to enjoy themselves together at EFNE events. As a courtesy to our medically fragile participants, we have consulted with our Professional Advisory Board and Board of Directors in an effort to keep everyone safe. As a result, the following COVID-19 guidelines were created:

Attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the three days prior to the event. Proof of identification in the form of a driver's license or government-issued photo identification must accompany either proof of vaccination status or a negative test.

Proof of Vaccination:

Acceptable proof of a COVID-19 vaccination includes a CDC vaccination card, a photocopy of the card, or a photo of the card on a mobile device. Cardholders must be at least two weeks past receiving their first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the second dose in a two-dose series vaccine (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

For those who cannot provide proof of vaccination:

Documentation of a negative test taken within three days of the event will also be accepted. The test must be a SARS-CoV-2 viral test (either nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT], including polymerase chain reaction [PCR], or antigen test) with Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Home tests will not be accepted.

Face Covering Requirements:

All guests aged five and older will be required to follow current face coverings requirements including wearing a mask at all times at the event including in seats, except when actively eating and drinking.

Children under age 12 do not need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test.

Thank you for working with EFNE to ensure our most medically vulnerable participants can participate safely and equally.   Please contact Susan Linn at @email or 617.458.1492 should you have concerns or questions.
