Hall County School system asks students who have traveled outside the U.S. in the last 2 weeks to call before attending

HALL COUNTY — In response to the spread of coronavirus nationwide, the Hall County School District is requiring all students who have traveled outside the United States within the past 14 days to call their schools for guidance prior to coming to school or participating in school sponsored activities.

According to the district, students should call prior to coming to school or attending any school activity. This also includes students who have had family members or individuals living at home who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days.

Hall County School District team members who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days are being asked to contact their principal or direct supervisor prior to coming to work or to any school campus activity — before, during, or after school hours.

This also includes school volunteers, community coaches, and all team members who have had family members or individuals living at home who have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days.

The school system has protocols in place for additional steps for those individuals who have visited countries designated as “high risk” by the federal government. A list of those countries will be updated daily at the following link: Coronavirus Information for Travel
