The Bellevue School District recommends limiting non-essential travel to reduce the spread of COVID-19 if unvaccinated.

Bellevue School District follows guidance from King County Public Health:

Testing for travel

  • Testing is not required before or after U.S. travel if fully vaccinated. Limit travel if you are not fully vaccinated or if traveling with unvaccinated children.
  • Travel requirements vary by state. Check local guidance before you go.
  • If you need a test for travel, it is not guaranteed that you will receive a result within 72 hours of departure at any of King County’s free testing sites. It’s also not guaranteed that the results will meet the specific requirements for all countries.
  • If you need a test for travel, look for rapid testing options that specialize in travel testing.
  • See frequently asked questions on testing and travel for more information.
  • For full guidance on domestic (travel within U.S) and international travel, see the CDC websites on Domestic Travel and International Travel during COVID-19.

Everyone should monitor for symptoms for 14 days and wear a mask, regardless of your vaccination status or where you’re traveling.
