Domestic Travel:

Quarantine is not required following Domestic Travel. All Domestic travelers should adhere to the following recommendations:

  • Monitor your child for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and contact your Healthcare provider if your child develops symptoms.
  • Keep your child home if they are sick and experience any COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, chills, new cough, new loss of taste or smell, and new shortness of breath, even if the symptoms are mild.
  • Mild symptoms such as a runny nose or backache have been mistaken for other illnesses and have turned out to be COVID-19.
  • Call the school to report any illness or positive test results for COVID-19.
