Quarantine or PCR Test after Travel

Because the Hungarian border doesn’t always enforce quarantines, some families might think it’s okay for their child to return to campus without one. This is a loophole, of sorts, and it certainly makes travel easier. However, for a child to return to campus after traveling abroad, families are still expected to follow the Hungarian national regulations. Children can certainly carry the coronavirus, particularly now with the different variants, and so we must keep health and safety precautions in place, following the appropriate guidelines.

Like winter break, if children don’t return to Hungary in time to quarantine 10 days before school starts, then they aren’t allowed to return to campus, regardless of what happens at a border, until 10 days have passed. Two negative PCR tests without quarantine is also an option.

These same rules apply for Spring Break as well.
