MCCA Statement on PAX East

While it is unfortunate that an exhibitor of PAX East has decided not to participate in this year’s event because of their own internal travel policies, the PAX East event and all other events are proceeding as planned.  The MCCA always works closely with federal, state, and local officials to monitor any health, security, weather, or other situations that could impact our events and prepare resources accordingly. Additionally, the MCCA adheres to the recommendation set forth in the U.S. EPA’s Emerging Pathogen Policy regarding cleaning disinfectants effective against the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV).  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Boston are considered to be low risk.
