Fully vaccinated individuals are excluded from quarantine requirements indefinitely, according to updated New York State Department of Health guidance. Effective immediately, if a fully vaccinated individual is identified as a contact to a positive case of COVID-19, the vaccinated individual will not need to quarantine.
Previously, vaccinated individuals were only exempt from quarantine for 90 days once fully vaccinated.
Please note, fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 must isolate themselves and should be clinically evaluated for COVID-19 and tested for COVID-19 if indicated.
All students and staff should continue to follow our COVID-19 safety protocols, including wearing a mask, social distancing, avoiding crowds, covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands often, and staying home when ill.
