• Healthy Attendance for Students and Staff

    ESBOCES is committed to the health and well-being of all who enter our buildings. It also encourages those who work and learn at ESBOCES to come to school or work only if you are feeling healthy and well.  If you do not feel well, please stay home.  If you begin to feel ill while at work or school, please make arrangements to go home.  

    We ask that you take your temperature prior to arrival.  Before you enter an ESBOCES building, you must be able to attest to these four statements: 


    Statement 1

    I am feeling healthy and well today, and have a temperature less than 100 degrees.

    Statement 2

    Within the last 10 days, I have not been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. As defined by the Suffolk County Department of Health, close contact means someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 10 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset; OR

    It has been at least 2 weeks since I was fully vaccinated; OR

    It has been less than 3 months since recovering from a lab confirmed positive COVID-19 test; AND I have remained asymptomatic since any exposure to COVID-19.

    Statement 3

    Within the last 10 days, I have not tested positive for COVID-19 nor have I been diagnosed as COVID-19 positive by a healthcare provider, nor am I awaiting
    results of a COVID-19 test.

    Statement 4

    I am not presently required to quarantine due to New York State travel advisories.
