Travel Order Update FEB Vacation


Dear Dighton Rehoboth Staff and Families:

The district appreciates all you have done to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Currently, we are witnessing declines in the positivity rate in many Commonwealth sectors. As we continue with our efforts to reduce COVID-19 transmission, it is critical that we avoid unnecessary travel.

Please be advised that the state issued Massachusetts COVID-19 Travel Order and the District Travel Policy remain in effect as we approach February break.
• Upon entering/re-entering Massachusetts from any out-of-state location deemed high risk (all of the U.S except Hawaii), all non-exempt travelers must quarantine for ten days.
• The alternative to a quarantine period is: to have received a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of arrival in Massachusetts. Thus testing can be initiated in the state visited.
• Receiving a coronavirus vaccination is not considered an exemption to the travel order requirements.
• Persons Who Tested Positive within 90 Days of Arrival to Massachusetts and Successfully Completed Isolation are exempted from testing and quarantine guidelines.
• The school nurse must receive a copy of the negative PCR test result before a student may attend in-person learning. If quarantining, please contact your child’s teacher or principal to learn about how you can keep your child engaged in remote learning.

Please contact your school nurse for questions or concerns.
