Siena’s Protocols Regarding Respiratory Viruses

On March 1st, 2024, the CDC updated their guidance for COVID-19 Protocols. In response, The Siena School has updated its COVID-19 policies as follows:

Community members should follow all policies regarding illness as outlined in the handbook, including:

  1. Stay home until they’ve been fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours and their symptoms have been improving for 24 hours.
  2. On returning to school, wear a mask for the next 5 days.

Additional recommendations include:

  • Staying up to date with vaccinations to protect people against serious illness, hospitalization, and death. This includes flu, COVID-19, and RSV if eligible.
  • Practicing good hygiene by covering coughs and sneezes, washing or sanitizing hands often, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.
  • Taking steps for cleaner air, such as bringing in more fresh outside air, purifying indoor air, or gathering outdoors.

For further guidance about respiratory viruses, see CDC Guidance.
