Important COVID UPDATES
Return to School After Travel
If traveling from a non exempt state, students and staff may return to school upon receiving a negative COVID-19 test result. (As of 11/23 New Hampshire and Vermont are exempt states. This is subject to change.)
Students and staff must wait at least 48 hours upon returning to Maine before being tested and remain in quarantine while awaiting results.
Students and staff will need to provide a copy of the negative test result before return to the building.
Anyone who is not tested must remain in quarantine for 14 days from date of reentry to the state of Maine. Unfortunately, this is not dependent on the length of time within the restricted states - a one day visit must meet the same requirements as a multi-day visit.
Please plan ahead if you plan to travel! Make your testing appointment prior to leaving the state. Maine testing site information can be found at: https://www.maine.gov/covid19/restartingmaine/keepmainehealthy/testing.
Return to School After Illness
A person who tests positive for COVID may return 10 days from the onset of symptoms (an asymptomatic person would be 10 days from the positive test result Or 10 days from date of test for an asymptomatic person) AND 24 hours without fever-free without the aid of medication AND Symptoms improving AND Maine CDC release from isolation.
All people identified as close contacts of positive cases must remain in quarantine for at least 14 days following their last exposure to the confirmed case. A close contact who receives a negative test result must still remain in quarantine for the balance of their 14 day quarantine period.
A close contact cannot “test out” of quarantine.
Thank you for following these updated guidelines. Please contact Nurse Boilard in the EACS Health Office with any questions. Thank you!
