Spring Break Travel: CDC Still Advising Would-Be Travelers To Delay Plans
As we near spring break (March 26 - April 5), please be mindful of the following CDC travel guidelines and how strict adherence to mitigation strategies has allowed us to offer face-to-face learning this year.

CDC: "You and your travel companions (including children) may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to family, friends, and community during and after travel. Check your state, territorial, or local health department for info about local quarantine requirements."
