COVID-19 Update

Travel and Quarantine

February 9, 2021

As we approach mid-winter recess next week, this is a reminder regarding travel outside of New York State (NYS) for more than 24 hours. NYS mandates that any travelers to a noncontiguous state, US territory, or CDC level 2 and higher country are required to do one of the following:


a. Participate in COVID testing 3 days prior to returning to NYS.


b. Quarantine for 3 days upon return to NYS AND participate in COVID testing on day 4 following return to NYS. This test must be a PCR (molecular - more invasive) test if an individual does not participate in COVID testing prior to returning to NYS. This test may be a rapid test if an individual did participate in COVID testing prior to returning to NYS.

Documentation of COVID testing must be submitted to the Lockport City School District as clearance to return to school/work.

2. OR:

Quarantine for 10 days following return to NYS.

The Lockport City School District will not be conducting daily notification of positive COVID-19 cases by email, text alert, or global calls during mid-winter recess week. This was the same plan used during winter recess in December.

Please remember to wear a face covering, practice social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and monitor your health regularly. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Be safe and stay well.
