Updated Masking Requirement

Dear Friends,

We have conferred with our Medical Advisory Team and due to the recent uptick in positive cases, effective Wednesday, May 18, all individuals in all three divisions, including non-academic buildings, will be required to wear masks while indoors. When possible, outdoor lunch will be encouraged. We are also in the process of scheduling additional PCR surveillance testing for the week of May 23. Details regarding test dates will be shared shortly. We will update the Testing Dashboard after we test the whole community.

Using Rapid Antigen Tests: If your child is experiencing symptoms and tests negative on a Rapid Antigen test, it is highly recommended that you follow up with a PCR test. We are finding that many who test negative on a Rapid Antigen test are testing positive on a PCR.

If you have questions regarding this email, please contact me at goldberge@sidwell.edu.
