Travel and Post-Exposure Quarantines

Effective April 1, 2021, Saint John’s will adopt the following guidelines regarding travel and post-exposure quarantines.

TRAVEL:

After out-of-state travel (excluding PA, DE, VA, WV, and DC), the following is required before a return to school or any extracurricular activities:

  1. A PCR test (not a rapid test) no sooner than 3 days (72 hours) after the date of return.
  2. A period of quarantine until a negative test result is obtained.

For travel outside of the U.S., the following is required before a return to school or any extracurricular activities:

  1. A PCR test (not a rapid test) no sooner than 3 days (72 hours) after the date of return
  2. A period of quarantine for 14 days

TRAVEL for FULLY VACCINATED PEOPLE:

  • If you are fully vaccinated, you DO NOT have to test or quarantine after out-of-state travel.
  • If you are fully vaccinated, you DO NOT need to get tested before leaving the United States (unless required by the destination) or self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States.

QUARANTINE:

The time required to quarantine after possible Covid-19 exposure will be reduced from 14 days to 10 days, with return to in-person instruction or extracurricular activities no sooner than Day 11, as long as a negative PCR test is obtained and no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.

Fully vaccinated individuals (2 weeks have passed since the 2nd dose or 2 weeks have passed since a single dose vaccine) do NOT need to quarantine after exposure. Individuals who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 90 days do NOT need to quarantine after exposure.

Any individual who tests positive for Covid-19 will be required to isolate for 10 days, with return to in-person instruction or extracurricular activities no sooner than Day 11.
