Bethel Public Schools officials have received a number of questions about travel planning over April Break.  The district follows the State of Connecticut Travel Advisory.   The current guidance is that travel in the U-S, except New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island, is to present a negative COVID test administered 72 hours prior to leaving the state or upon return to Connecticut to be admitted back to school.  That guidance is anticipated to be updated next Friday.  Governor Ned Lamont has said that the general mandate will become a recommendation.  At this point, Bethel School officials say they do not know how it will be updated or how closely it will align to the new CDC guidance for the return to school.
