Travel Guidelines

Mid-Pen Student and Staff Travel Guidelines 

Mid-Pen's Travel Policy during the COVID-19 pandemic is based on CDC Travel Guidelines for COVID-19 vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Please review these guidelines closely as they may impact student and staffulty (faculty and staff) participation in school activities. 

If a student or staffulty member has not provided verification of vaccination to the school, the individual must follow all travel protocols for unvaccinated people.

Domestic Travel

  • Vaccinated: No testing or quarantine is required.
  • Unvaccinated: The CDC protocol for unvaccinated individuals to isolate AND and self-quarantine for a full seven days after returning from travel. In addition, Mid-Pen requires that students and staffulty take a COVID-19 test five days after they return. 

In addition, unvaccinated individuals must follow the following CDC instructions:

  • Even if the test result is negative, students and staffulty must stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.  Please send the test results to COVID-19 test coordinator Jorge Rodriguez.
  • If the test is positive, indivituals should isolate themselves to protect others from getting infected.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.

International Travel

  • Vaccinated or unvaccinated: In line with CDC international travel protocols, Mid-Pen requires that students and staffulty  take a COVID-19 test five days after their return.  Out of an abundance of caution, individuals can only return to campus after receiving a negative test result, which should be sent to Jorge Rodriguez.

In addition, unvaccinated individuals must follow the following CDC instructions:

  • Even if the test result is negative, students and staffulty should stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.  Please send the test results to COVID-19 test coordinator Jorge Rodriguez.
  • If the test is positive, they should isolate themselves to protect others from getting infected.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
