From the Infirmary
We hope you all have a great Thanksgiving Holiday. Please remember that if your cadet is feeling ill or has been exposed to someone who has COVID or the Flu to not return to campus until you have spoken with one of the nurses from our Infirmary.
Upon returning to campus, all cadets must fill out a survey that helps us assess any one who may have been at high risk of exposure. Please download the here. We ask that it not be filled out until the day before returning to campus.
The Infirmary staff is closely monitoring COVID and Flu cases in our local area. We know that the risk of coming down with the flu or COVID increases when your cadet travels or while he is at home over Thanksgiving. If your cadet is feeling ill or presents flu-like symptoms over Thanksgiving break, when it is time to return to campus, please keep him at home and contact the Infirmary for further instructions. Based on the symptoms presented, we will identify appropriate actions for a safe return.
There are only 3 weeks between returning from Thanksgiving break and the start of Christmas break. Hargrave cannot support any isolation or quarantine over the holiday break. If a cadet were to exhibit COVID or Flu like symptoms (fever being one of the main reasons to isolate among other symptoms), he will be isolated in the Infirmary for assessment. Should it be deemed best for him to return home, you will be contacted in order to coordinate your cadet’s departure from campus. While in isolation in the infirmary or during a cadet’s early return home, class assignments will be conducted via distance learning and coordinated through your cadet’s teachers.
We appreciate your understanding in these circumstances as we work to provide a safe and healthy environment for all cadets, staff and faculty.
