Thank you to all of our students and families who have continued to follow PPS health protocols. PPS will continue to follow the NJ Dept of Health COVID travel advisory guidelines. Staff and students who are not vaccinated need to get tested 3-5 days after travel and quarantine for 5 days. This applies to travelers who go outside of the tri-state area of NY, PA and Delaware, and for international travel.  

If you have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days, and are not vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine.  

For staff and students who are fully vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine after travel. We ask that you monitor for symptoms, stay home if you are not feeling well and get tested for COVID. 

Travel Guidelines

Domestic Travel

For those traveling to or from New Jersey, domestic travel is considered to be any travel lasting 24 hours or longer to any U.S. states or territories other than Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware.

  • The CDC recommends delaying travel until you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Do NOT travel if you are sick, tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for your test results, or had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 and are recommended to quarantine.
  • If you are NOT up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, you should get tested 1-3 days before your trip and 3-5 days after travel. The CDC also recommends staying home and self-quarantining for 5 days after domestic travel.
  • If you are up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines or if you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months, you do not need to get tested or self-quarantine after travel. However, the CDC recommends self-monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms, and isolating and getting tested if you develop symptoms.

For more information, refer to the CDC's guidance for domestic travel or the NJ Department of Health's travel page.

International Travel

The CDC recommends delaying travel until you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines. Before traveling internationally, check the COVID-19 situation at your destination and follow any requirements at your destination, including mask wearing, proof vaccination, testing, or quarantine.

  • If you are NOT vaccinated or NOT up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, the CDC recommends a viral test 1-3 days before your trip.
  • All air passengers two years of age or older, regardless of vaccination status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before boarding a flight from a foreign country to the United States. If you recently recovered from COVID-19, you may instead travel with proper documentation of recovery from COVID-19.
  • If you are not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or immigrant, you must be fully vaccinated to travel to the United States by plane. Limited exceptions apply.
  • After arrival to the United States, all travelers should get tested with a COVID-19 viral test 3-5 days after travel, self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and isolate and get tested if they develop symptoms. If you are NOT vaccinated or NOT up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, you should stay home and self-quarantine for a full 5 days after travel.
  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

For more information, refer to the CDC's guidance for international travel or the NJ Department of Health's travel page.
