    Can I Go to Work at the School Today?

    In the past 10 days, have you been tested for the virus that causes COVID-19, also known as SARS-CoV-2?

    • If Yes: Was the test result Positive Or are you still waiting for the result?

      • If Yes: You cannot go to work at the school today and must stay in isolation (at home and away from others) until your test results are back and are Negative Or if Positive, the local health department has released you from isolation.

      • If No: In the last 14 days, have you:
        Traveled internationally to a CDC level 2 or 3 COVID-19 related travel health notice country;
        or Traveled to a state or territory on the NYS Travel Advisory List;
        or Been designated a contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19 by a local health department?

        • If Yes: You cannot go to work at the school today.
          If you have had any of these exposures, you must stay at home until your local health department releases you from quarantine, at least 14 days from the date of your last exposure. A negative diagnostic COVID-19 test does not change the 14-day quarantine requirement. School staff are not essential workers and must quarantine.

        • If No: Do you currently have (or have had in the last 10 days) one or more of these new or worsening symptoms:
          A temperature greater than or equal to 100.0° F (37.8° C);
