Travel Restrictions: Out-of-State Students & Vacations
Mount Saint Mary College cannot limit student travel, but the college will suggest that students remain on campus for weekends and holidays. Resident students must notify their RA before leaving campus for the weekend. Upon return, students will fill out a screening form. Students coming to campus from states that have travel restrictions will be contacted by Residence Life and will be quarantined for the required time as outlined by New York State.
Vacations, High Risk States, and Quarantine
The governor of New York recently imposed travel restrictions for high risk COVID-19 states. Anyone who has been in one of these states must quarantine for 14 days before being allowed on the Mount campus. If you have been to one of these states within the 14 days before your return date to campus, you must quarantine in New York or another state not on the high risk list before returning to campus. Please be aware of this while planning vacations.
The list of impacted states is being updated frequently and can be found on the Department of Health website. This list is based on a seven day rolling average of positive tests in excess of 10 percent, or the number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.
