In the United States, many event and meeting planners are navigating the unfamiliar and ever-changing waters of COVID safety protocols as we begin transitioning back to in-person events (thanks, vaccine!). It’s an exciting, but somewhat daunting time.

It can be tough to keep up, with U.S. regulations varying by state, county and sometimes even city. For example, as of April 22, Massachusetts mandates a cap of 100 people in any indoor private event venue, yet the city of Boston issued a superseding order that just 10 people may be in the same room at once. Your company may also have its own rules; and then there’s everyone else, like the contractors and venues.
