COVID Travel Policy Update (8/24/21)
In an effort to keep our children, families and staff as safe as possible, Wesley Child Care continues to require all employees and Wesley families to follow the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) Travel guidelines. Wesley originally adopted these travel restrictions on July 24, 2020.
At this time, we want to update our staff and families that the Cook County Department of Public Health has revised their recommended travel guidance. You can find that guidance here. While they are still using the City of Chicago map to determine travel hot spots (i.e. orange states), they have now adopted the CDC guidance for travel which says that if an unvaccinated individual (including adult or child) travels to an orange state, they should get a Covid-19 PCR test 3-5 days after travel AND fully quarantine for seven days (even with a negative test). We also ask that you update your Wesley program director of such travel.
Please remember that by attending Wesley you are certifying they are free of Covid-19 symptoms, have NOT been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, and that you have reviewed the Cook County travel guidance and are quarantining as appropriate.
Note: Students attending Glenview District 34 schools must also adhere to their stated Travel Guidance and SHIELD Testing protocols.
