Exeter Summer COVID-19 Updates

-- March 17, 2021 -- 

While the threat of COVID-19 is receding in some places, in other areas transmission rates continue to rise. Exeter Summer takes a serious stance against the spread of COVID-19. Safeguarding the Exeter Summer community members against this dangerous virus requires the cooperation and vigilance of all members, students, parents, faculty and staff.

Here are several steps students must take before they travel to campus, and what they must follow while at Exeter. All are designed with student's health and safety in mind and the well-being of classmates, dorm mates, teachers, coaches, dorm faculty, chefs and everyone else you can think of who help make the summer session eye-opening and fun.

The items below pertain to all on-campus students.

PRE-ARRIVAL TO CAMPUS:

  • Domestic students will need to quarantine at-home for 7 days pre-arrival and take a PCR test the day they enter this quarantine
  • International students will need to quarantine at-home for 7 days pre-arrival and take a PCR test from their own provider within the guidelines of their airline/country (likely 72 hours prior to flight)

ARRIVAL TO CAMPUS:

  • All students receive a rapid PCR test upon arrival to campus
  • All students spend 7 days quarantining on campus
  • All students participate in two (2) times weekly saliva pooled testing
  • Students will be required to wear masks when they cannot maintain social distance
  • Any positive student leaves campus with parents or a predesignated adult within 48 hours of a positive diagnosis.
  • Any student who needs to quarantine secondary to being a close contact leaves within 48 hours of being identified as a close contact.

All community members will wear masks when at a minimum of six feet from others. Masks will not be required when one is alone, eating, or at a safe distance (six feet). While eating one should still observe social distancing. 

In the event of a student’s positive test result, that student will need to depart campus within 48 hours. Parents will need to pick up their child. If the parents cannot come to campus, due to distance, etc., another adult who can pick up the child must be designated by the parents. The identity of that adult must be shared with Exeter Summer before the program begins.

These safety protocols will remind us of our responsibilities to work to safeguard each other’s well-being to the maximum practical degree we can. We’ll still learn, have a great deal of fun and return home with rich memories and new friends.
