We are all looking forward to April break and some warmer weather. Many are traveling. If you are traveling to a "non-exempt" state (any state other than Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island) adults who are not fully vaccinated against Covid and children need to be tested or quarantine for 10 days upon return to Maine. The test can be done up to 72 hours before returning to Maine, or you can be tested after arriving back in Maine. Here is a link to possible test sites in our area: https://get-tested-covid19.org/search?zip=04412 If you opt to get tested, please send the school nurse a screenshot of the negative test by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or hand in a paper copy of the results. Here is the link to FAQs about travel: https://www.maine.gov/covid19/keepmainehealthy We wish you safe travels and a restful vacation!
