If your child(ren) traveled outside of Shanghai during the Chinese New Year break for essential reasons, please note the Shanghai municipal government's requirement for a negative NAT result within 48 hours of returning to Shanghai from a low-risk area (must be before returning to school). Please email your negative NAT result to your divisional nurse before coming to campus.
In addition, if your child traveled, please complete a follow-up "Post CNY Travel Survey" in PowerSchool for each child enrolled at SAS by Monday, February 14th. Once logged in, you will find the “Post CNY Travel Survey” on the left side menu. If you had initially indicated that you would or may traveling but have since had a change to your plans, please revisit the original “Student Travel Survey” in PowerSchool and update your response accordingly.
Reporting: All persons traveling to and returning to Shanghai from cities where there are medium/high-risk areas shall report to the local village/neighborhood committees and units (or hotels) as soon as possible and within 12 hours after their arrival in Shanghai. They will be managed by category according to where they have traveled from and through.
Quarantine: All persons traveling to and returning to Shanghai from or through a high-risk area or from counties/districts/cities where there are designated high- risk areas or areas declared by the local government as requiring lockdown management, shall be placed under government designated quarantine for 14 days and will require 2 Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) tests.
Neighborhood Health Management: All persons traveling to and returning to Shanghai from or through medium-risk areas or from counties/districts/cities where there are designated high- risk areas shall be placed under strict neighborhood committee health management for 14 days plus require 2 Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) tests.
To remain up to date on high and medium risk areas within China, we encourage everyone follow the official Shanghai Bendibao WeChat account (WeChat ID: shbendibao). We will be monitoring this account daily and translating the information in the Areas of Risk section.
Note: If you have recently arrived from overseas, students, faculty, staff and parents will only be able to access campus after an additional 7-day home self-monitoring period following your 14 day central quarantine release.
COVID–19 creates ever-changing conditions and regulations, and our focus on health and safety remains paramount. In the case where parents need to travel, please be sure to check with the Shanghai municipal government and your neighborhood committee first. This will ensure that you have the most current and updated regulations around quarantine, health monitoring and NAT test requirements that may impact you or your child’s access to campus.
