Dear PPS Staff and Families,

Princeton continues to be in a public health situation where unvaccinated students and staff must quarantine after travel lasting 24 hours or longer outside of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York or Delaware. 

  • The CDC recommends unvaccinated individuals stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after domestic travel, and for 10 days if they are unable to test. Unvaccinated individuals who do travel should get tested 3-5 days after travel.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals and those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months do not need to get tested or self-quarantine after travel. However, the CDC recommends fully vaccinated individuals self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and isolate and get tested if they develop symptoms.

Please remember that if an individual received a vaccine, they are not considered fully vaccinated for 2 weeks after the 2ndshot. If you travel during that two-week period, you are traveling as a person who is not fully vaccinated and will still need to follow quarantine requirements upon return. The quarantine days begin from the day after the individual reaches the fully vaccinated status.  

For more details, here is travel information from the New Jersey Department of Health and from the CDC.
