14 Day Quarantine Recommended Before Returning to Programs
For those of you choosing to travel over break, we need your support to keep our program participants safe. The CDC
currently recommends a quarantine period of 14 days. However, the following options to shorten quarantine are acceptable alternatives:
- Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring. With this strategy, residual post-quarantine transmission risk is estimated to be about 1% with an upper limit of about 10%.
- Quarantine can end after Day 7 if a diagnostic specimen tests negative and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring. The earliest a specimen may be collected and tested would be on Day 6 with quarantine being discontinued no earlier than Day 8. With this strategy, the residual post-quarantine transmission risk is estimated to be about 5% with an upper limit of about 12%. This option is not recommended for children in daycares or K-12 schools.
Registration for winter activities
will begin Tuesday, January 5, and all winter programs will start the week of January 19. Our classes will follow IDPH guidelines
for in-person meetings.
Thank you for your partnership as we navigate these challenging times.
