    Spring Break Travel Recommendations (The safest thing to do is stay home for spring break.)

    Domestic Travel: 

    • It’s safest to be with members of your own family only. Masks, distancing, & hand hygiene around others.
    • Check out the CDC Travel Planner for local requirements & resources.
    • Pre-travel: CDC recommends testing
    • Post travel: testing and quarantine is recommended but not required. We encourage testing.

    International Travel:

    The CDC now requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a flight to the U.S. 

    Washtenaw County Health Department’s Advisory to Schools (March 2):

    • Students or staff traveling internationally to most destinations should self-quarantine for 10 days after returning to the U.S. and may not attend in-person school.

    CDC recommends getting a PCR test 3-5 days after arriving home. A negative result does not shorten quarantine. We encourage testing.
