Staff and Student Travel

Q:  What measures are being taken regarding student and staff travel?

A:  The CDC is recommending avoiding all non-essential travel to Level 3 countries which are currently (3/12/20) China, Iran, South Korea and certain European countries and has placed restrictions on re-entry to the United States for individuals traveling from these countries. Parents and students who do travel to one of these countries over Spring Break should contact campus administration and plan to self-quarantine for 14 days after returning to the United States per the CDC’s guidelines. If traveling to any destination, be proactive and monitor closely for symptoms for approximately 14 days upon return, staying home and seeking medical attention if becoming ill. Travel advisories are posted on the CDC website https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel and updated regularly.

Q:  Is the district monitoring student and/or staff travel during Spring Break?

A:  Staff members were surveyed on where they traveled and thus required self-quarantine if they visited any of the Level 2 or 3 areas determined by the CDC or met local criteria for high-risk travel.  Staff members or students who have a fever or exhibit flu-like symptoms should self-quarantine until they have been evaluated by a medical professional.
