When Not to Come to Campus
We ask all community members to stay home or go home if they are feeling sick or exhibiting symptoms of any respiratory illness, including COVID-19, RSV, influenza, and others. If you or your child are exhibiting symptoms or feeling unwell, please do not come to campus and contact your teacher, Student Services, or campus staff to facilitate moving to an online lesson. Please visit the CDC website for more information on possible symptoms of COVID-19.
Levine asks all community members to follow the CDC’s recommendations on returning to campus after a positive COVID-19 case, exposure, or other respiratory illness.
After a positive case of COVID-19, the CDC recommends isolating for five full days. Isolating may end after five days if free of fever for 24 hours and symptoms improve. Individuals should continue masking when around others for ten full days.
After exposure to someone with COVID-19, the CDC recommends taking precautions such as masking and self-monitoring for symptoms. Individuals should test immediately if symptoms develop and stay home to await results. Otherwise, the CDC recommends testing on day six following the exposure.
For all respiratory illnesses, Levine asks all community members to self-monitor for symptoms, self-isolate as symptoms develop, and stay home from in-person campus activities until fever-free for at least 24 hours and symptoms improve.
Levine no longer requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination for participation in on-campus activities, but we highly recommend protecting yourself and your children by staying current on all your vaccinations. Please speak with your healthcare provider for more details on vaccine availability near you.
Masking is optional for most on-campus activities. However, individuals wishing to continue masking may do so for any activity and any reason.
Following the guidance and advice of our medical consultants and HVAC systems consultants, upgrades have been made to ensure appropriate ventilation and filtration at our DC Campus: NW. Additionally, we invested in plasma air cleaning technology, and our HVAC systems have been calibrated to increase outdoor air intake. Portable air purifiers are placed around our campus locations to reflect the highest CADR rating recommended by the EPA for the correct room sizes and square footage to maximize air filtration.
All Levine campuses are regularly cleaned and disinfected. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting materials are also available for public use throughout our spaces.
