New travel guidelines take effect April 1

As we approach our spring recess (Apr. 2-9), we encourage our school community to continue following all COVID safety guidelines – wearing masks, socially distancing and avoiding large gatherings.

In regard to travel, Governor Cuomo announced earlier this month that domestic travelers will no longer be required to quarantine after entering New York from another U.S. State or U.S. Territory starting April 1st. Mandatory quarantine remains in effect for international travelers. All travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form.

Regardless of quarantine status, all individuals exposed to COVID-19 or returning from travel must:

  • Continue daily symptom monitoring through Day 14;
  • Continue strict adherence to all recommended safety measures, including hand hygiene and the use of face coverings, through Day 14 (even if fully vaccinated);
  • Immediately self-isolate if any symptoms develop and contact the local public health authority or their healthcare provider to report this change in clinical status and determine if they should seek testing.

The daily health attestation survey for students and staff will reflect the travel advisory changes; therefore, there will not be a question about domestic travel.

Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
