Quarantine Guidance from the NJ Department of Health

We received clarification from the NJ Department of Health on May 20, 2021 that while NJ will be lifting their specific state quarantine guidance, individuals should still follow CDC travel guidance. For the purpose of this guidance, domestic travel is defined as travel lasting 24 hours or longer to states or US territories other than contiguous states (i.e., Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware). CDC travel guidance states that individuals who are not fully vaccinated should quarantine after travel. 


Travelers may get tested with a viral COVID-19 test 3-5 days after the trip with day one being the day after he returns.  A negative result still requires a 7 day quarantine, with a return to school on day 8.  If travelers do not get tested, a self-quarantine for 10 days is required, with a return to school on day 11.
