COVID-19 Information

Updated April 3, 2024

The CDC has updated their guidance for COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health suggest that individuals do the following when they have a respiratory virus: 

  • Stay home, and away from others, until symptoms are improving overall AND they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medication
  • Take precautions to prevent spread for the next five days after returning to normal activities (whatever possible in your setting, example: masking, distancing, air filtration, hygiene)

Shady Side Academy no longer contact traces, identifies close contacts, or requires healthy students to quarantine due to exposure. 

We encourage students and staff to stay home when ill and follow local, state, and federal guidelines. Please contact your healthcare provider for further guidance.
