Nov. 25, 2020: Important Message for Students Regarding Thanksgiving Travel
Cuesta College Cougars,
Given the increase in COVID cases in San Luis Obispo and the State’s travel advisory, we will have the following rules/expectations for face-to-face classes after Thanksgiving:
- Any student who travels outside the State of California must quarantine for 14 days
upon return. Negative COVID tests do not allow this quarantine to be shortened.
- Since 14 days will extend all the way to Finals Week, a student may be best suited “staying home” after Thanksgiving if all of their Finals are online.
- Thinking about the start of the Spring semester, we don’t know how long the travel advisory for out-of-state travel will be in effect. Those students should probably plan on a 14-day quarantine upon their return.
- Students who travel outside the County over Thanksgiving should schedule a COVID test
upon their return. This test should be considered an additional precaution; people
who get tested voluntarily are not required to wait for the results before participating
in face-to-face classes.
- Anyone who believes they were exposed to someone with COVID over Thanksgiving must seek testing and wait for a negative result before returning to participation.
