Big picture


Quarantine rules and expectations for international travelers are constantly changing. At this time, travelers returning to the United States from outside the country are still subject to a minimum 7-day to 10-day quarantine (with a negative COVID test 3-5 days after return). This quarantine period applies whether or not the traveler is vaccinated. If you have planned international travel over Spring Break, please notify your school nurse of those plans.
