The Hernando County schools superintendent asked staff members and students to self-isolate for 14 days after spring break if they have traveled overseas or taken a cruise, in a letter sent to staff members and families on Friday. The district’s week-long spring break begins Monday.
Superintendent John Stratton also asked staff and students to notify school administrators of any such travel.
The recommendations were issued by the state Department of Health and Department of Education, and Stratton said Hernando County schools will follow them.
“We will continue to monitor this ever-changing situation, and we will continue to communicate with our staff and families over spring break as information becomes known,” Stratton wrote.
