Community members should monitor CDC and DC guidance regarding travel.

As of June 2021,  those who travel outside of DC, MD, or VA—for more than a day trip— are required to quarantine for five days after returning from travel, get tested on day five, and continue in quarantine until receiving a negative test result. Quarantine after such travel should last for 10 days if not getting a test.

If a person has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days, they do not need to quarantine after travel. The quarantine requirement is also waived for anyone who has received the full dose of the vaccine and completed the recommended two-week waiting period.

Health and Safety Guidelines

Health and safety planning for Maret’s summer programs will be guided by recommendations from government and health officials. We closely monitor information from the CDC, the DC Department of Health, Johns Hopkins, and the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE).

Safety protocols have been a moving target as the world continues to learn more about COVID-19. It is imperative that our health and safety measures respond to the ongoing pandemic while allowing us to run safe and enjoyable camps..

Our protocols will be effective only if our entire community—camp participants/families and all visitors—commit to following them. These protocols will require some sacrifice and discipline from those who do come on campus, but they will allow us to use our campus to the greatest extent possible.

On Campus Protocols

The recommendations coming from, and restrictions imposed by, local and federal agencies are ever-changing; therefore, our plans will remain flexible in order to provide the most effective possible response.


* Despite the many mitigation strategies put in place by Maret, attending a summer camp is not without risk. COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic that is spread via person-to-person contact, and coming to campus is predicated on that understanding. There is an inherent risk that participants may become infected with COVID-19 while attending camp. As a school, we have taken reasonable measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on campus; however, it is important to acknowledge that campus will not be a risk-free environment.
