St. John the Baptist School - Updated Travel Guidelines

As we prepare for April recess, the school would like to update you on the current information provided by the CDC and DPH regarding travel advisory information due to COVID-19. As of Thursday, April 1, our guidelines will be changing as domestic travelers are no longer required to quarantine when entering Massachusetts. Regardless of travel updates, the state of Massachusetts and the Center for Disease Control continue to emphasize that we follow all COVID-19 safety protocols during this time, including consistent hand hygiene and the wearing of masks on public transportation and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs.

Protect Yourself and Others - During Travel

  • Follow all state, tribal, local and territorial health recommendations and requirements at your destination, including properly wearing a well-fitting mask.

  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required in indoor areas of public transportation (including on airplanes, buses, trains, and other forms of public Transportation) traveling into, within, or out of the United States and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports and stations). Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

After Travel

  • We will no longer require students to stay home and quarantine after travel.

  • We ask that you monitor your child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if symptoms appear.

·Important notice: The school continues to urge families to be accurate and honest.

  • As a school community, we have followed detailed procedures established by local, state and national health agencies as it pertains to keeping our school safe. Accurately reporting health status will continue to ensure a safe environment for in-person instruction.

  • Please refer to the CDC website for additional information regarding COVID-19.

Please continue to follow the necessary, ongoing COVID safety protocols that will help to ensure the health and safety of all staff and students.
