St. Andrew's School is keeping its dorms open during March break.

According to St. Andrew's School Spokesperson O'rya Hyde-Keller, officials at the Barrington private school decided to keep dorms open during the March break in order accommodate international students who have decided not to travel home because of coronavirus concerns.

"There will be faculty and staff on hand to supervise, and we will be offering a program of activities, trips, and enrichment opportunities," said Ms. Hyde-Keller.

St. Andrew's School officials will also be monitoring all of their students travel plans, Ms. Hyde-Keller added. 

"Any St. Andrew's student, domestic or international, who has traveled to or from a CDC Level 3 country (China, Iran, South Korea and Italy) will be required upon return to the U.S. to observe a 14-day waiting period and provide an all-clear medical exam with their physician before returning to campus. Any St. Andrew's student, domestic or international, who has traveled to a CDC Level 2 country (Japan) will be monitored for 14 days by the school nurse upon their return to campus."
