Dear Brocton Families- The upcoming school break raises concern about travel-based COVID-19 cases. If BCS school staff members or families choose to travel, the New York State advisory guidance will apply for travelers who travel to a non-contiguous state for more than 24 hours. There are two Quarantine options: Option 1.) Travelers must quarantine for 10 days following arrival in New York State. Or option 2.) Quarantine while receiving two COVID-19 tests. With option 2-Travelers must obtain a diagnostic COVID-19 test within three days of departure (or prior to arrival in New York State). Travelers must quarantine upon arrival in New York State for three days. On day four of quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID-19 test. If both tests are negative, the traveler may exit their quarantine. Please provide the health office with both negative tests if you choose option 2. Contiguous states that you are able to visit without quarantine are the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, and Massachusetts (as long as their county is not under a current COVID-19 alert). If you have any questions about the New York State advisory guidance, please visit the Chautauqua County Department of Health website for more information. Have a great Mid-Winter Recess, Brocton!
