COVID-19 Information for EMI Students

The health, wellness and safety of our students, instructors and staff is paramount. NETC staff is continuously monitoring and evaluating the national COVID-19 situation and the current guidance in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Based on COVID-19 conditions, training at the NETC campus will be evaluated weekly.

If you are ill within 14 days prior to training, we ask that you do not attend training. We want you to closely monitor your health and avoid situations or areas that are high risk for COVID-19 or other fever-related illnesses 14 days prior to arriving.

  • Vaccination: The NETC will no longer require vaccination or other proof of vaccination for contractors, visitors, students, and instructors.
  • Screening Testing: The NETC will no longer require COVID-19 screening testing regardless of community level or vaccination status.


  • All individuals will be required to mask when being transported by the federal bus to and from campus. Masks are also required indoors at the NETC when CDC community levels are HIGH. Individuals may choose to mask indoors when CDC community levels are MEDIUM or LOW.
