MPCSD’s Travel Guidelines
MPCSD follows the guidance of San Mateo County Health Department and the California Department of Public Health in making travel recommendations. The state and county continue to advise against any non-essential travel (non-essential travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature) outside the Bay Area or 120 miles from your home, as travel is still considered a risky activity. MPCSD requests families to heed this advice. However, should you choose to travel, please read the information at the county’s travel page and plan to quarantine for 10 days after travel if you engaged in higher risk activities. High risk activities include being among people you don’t live with without a mask, not practicing social distancing, or traveling outside of California. In other words, California travel in-and-of-itself is not an automatic recommendation for quarantine.
Beyond recommending against any non-essential travel, MPCSD requests that families avoid public transportation (e.g. plane, train, etc.) even with a mask. If you choose to use public transportation, we still feel quarantine is the safest response.
Now that we are in Orange, we can be a bit less restrictive, but as you consider your travel and quarantine decisions please remember that an uptick in cases both at school and throughout the community could close schools and quickly push the county back into a more restrictive tier. All our choices matter, and we need to stay safe together.
