Dear Fred C. Underhill School Parents/Guardians,
As the holiday season approaches and families consider their plans for family gatherings, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of the state’s travel guidance.
People traveling outside the six New England States (NH, ME, VT, MA, CT, RI) still need to self-quarantine for 14 days from their last day of travel outside New England. As of November 12, travellers now have the option to shorten their travel-related quarantine if ALL the following apply:
- The person gets a molecular-based test (an antigen, rapid test, is not acceptable) on day 7 (or later) of their quarantine;
- The person tests negative;
- The person remains asymptomatic.
This 7-day “test out” of travel quarantine option applies ONLY to travel-related quarantine and NOT quarantine due to other types of exposure.
If you know that your child will be travelling outside of New England at any time, it would be helpful if you would let us know ahead of time so that we can prepare for their absence and get you the materials that they need to learn from home.
We feel very fortunate to be able to offer in-person instruction for Fred C. Underhill School families. Thank you for doing your part to help us continue with this learning model.
