Return to School - Spring Break Travel
Dear Clarkstown School Community,
This morning we received the following information from the Rockland County Department of Health regarding travel: Anyone who travels within the United States and returns to New York on or after April 1, 2021 DOES NOT have to quarantine.
While travelling, please continue to follow the mitigating measures, wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing and hand sanitizing, that aid in preventing the spread of Covid-19 as the pandemic is ongoing.
RETURN FROM INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL:
Travel to New York From Other Countries:
Current CDC guidance requires air passengers traveling to the U.S. from another country show either documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 within the previous 3 months or a negative test result from no more than 3 days prior to the day of travel to the airline before boarding the flight. This applies to both U.S. residents and visitors from other countries. (Documentation of vaccination status or antibody test results will not be accepted as proof of COVID status prior to boarding, per CDC guidance.)
After arrival in the U.S., travelers must either quarantine for 7 days with a test 3-5 days after travel, or quarantine for the full 10 days without a test. This requirement applies to all international travelers whether they were tested before boarding, are recovered from a previous COVID infection, or are fully vaccinated.
For more information on acceptable documentation visit “Requirement for Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test or Recovery from COVID-19 for All Air Passengers Arriving in the United States.”
Compliance with CDC guidance for international travel is required in New York State for all travelers arriving or passing through New York from other countries (e.g., connecting flights), including healthcare workers and essential workers.
As school reopens on April 7th, we ask your cooperation in continuing to comply with all COVID safety measures to protect the health of all and help keep our schools open.
Upon return to school, all students and staff who will be in person will continue to complete the daily health screening via Share911 Wellness. Parents of students who have been on remote instruction will need to create a parent account. More information on this will be shared closer to April 5th. Information is available at www.ccsd.edu/Share911.
Wishing you all a safe and healthy spring break.
Stay strong! Stay healthy!
