Hawken continues to use the Ohio travel advisories and, in the case of international travel, CDC and State Department warnings as our guide as we support families returning to Cleveland and in-person activities after traveling. The state of Ohio currently recommends quarantining for 14 days after traveling to another state and /or countries with a COVID-19 positive testing rate of 15% or higher.  We will be following the state recommendations.
Please reach out to us for guidance at health@hawken.edu if you have any questions, as we have been working on a case-by-case basis as best we can to determine what is safest for our community. If a parent is traveling alone, please know that children do not have to quarantine, but we ask you to closely monitor your child’s health and to make necessary adjustments if symptoms develop. If children are traveling, we would base the need for quarantine on the updated travel advisories referenced. These travel guidelines should be taken into consideration as you look toward any future travel plans. Please know that these guidelines continue to be updated and that circumstances may be different at the time of any future travel.

This restart guide represents our best thinking, as well as that of experts at some of the top medical and educational institutions in the nation. Thank you to all of our medical advisors and peer schools for your guidance in helping to identify the specific protocols and resources referenced in this comprehensive plan.
