Self-Quarantines, Testing & Travel

GW Nursing students coming from high-risk states and relocating to the District of Columbia (D.C.) are subject to all guidelines regarding COVID testing. On November 6, 2020, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser issued Mayor’s Order 2020-110 constituting a revised travel advisory with change from a quarantine-based travel strategy to a test-based travel strategy. The current widespread availability of COVID-19 testing has made this a reasonable approach. Students traveling from these states and residing in D.C. should follow these new testing guidelines. Students not planning to live in D.C. are not subject to these guidelines, but should stay apprised of regional public health guidelines.
