Returning to School Following Travel:
At present, the Maryland Department of Health strongly recommends that all Marylanders refrain from nonessential travel outside of Maryland due to the recent increase in COVID-19 infections in other states. If you choose to travel, we ask all faculty, staff and students to notify Saint John’s prior to return to campus. If the state you are returning from has a positivity rate for COVID-19 of 10% or greater OR a new case rate above 20 per 100,000 in the past 7 days, you will be required to self-quarantine and may return to in person instruction/activities only after providing a negative PCR test result and remaining asymptomatic, or after completing a quarantine not less than 14 sequential calendar days from the date of your return.
The following websites provide information regarding the positivity rates and new case rates for all 50 States, US territories and some international destinations:
