Travel
Guidelines

Newark Academy advises students and employees who may be considering travel to take the following steps:​

 

- Check the CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices for the latest guidance and recommendations for each country or region to which you may be traveling.

 

- Check yourself for ​symptoms of acute respiratory illness​ before starting travel and stay home if you are sick.

 

- Students who become sick while traveling must notify the Dean of Students or Middle School Office and should promptly call a healthcare provider for advice. Students must provide a medical clearance note from their physician if out of school for three days or more stating that they are free of communicable diseases and can return to school, sports and all extracurricular activities. Prior to returning to school, students will be fever-free for 24 hours (body temperature less than 100.4) without the use of fever-reducing agents prior to their return.

- Employees who become sick while traveling or on temporary assignment must notify the Director of Human Resources and should promptly call a healthcare provider for advice. Employees will provide a medical clearance note from their physician if out of work for three days or more stating they are free of communicable diseases and can return to work. Upon return to work, employees must be fever-free for 24 hours [temp. less than 100.4] without the use of fever-reducing agents prior to their return.

 

- Newark Academy will require all students and employees who travel internationally or to states on New Jersey’s ​Travel Advisory list​ to self-isolate for 14 days. Newark Academy encourages fellow household members of students and employees to self-isolate after traveling, but the students and employees themselves would not be required to self-isolate in those situations. Newark Academy will continue to monitor CDC and NJ Department of Health guidance.
