Are students, parents/guardians, and staff members required to wear masks or take other precautions?

COVID-19 Questions
December 2, 2020

Regulations and guidelines intended to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 vary greatly by region. It is the responsibility of students, parents/guardians, and all test center staff to comply with all applicable regulations and guidelines issued by state and local health authorities, which may include but are not limited to:

  • Wearing a cloth face mask that fully covers the mouth and nose at all times
  • Maintaining minimum physical distance between people
  • Ensuring that the number of people in any given space does not exceed a specified maximum
  • Abiding by travel restrictions
  • Self-quarantining upon potential exposure to COVID-19 or following travel from certain locations
  • Complying with stay-at-home orders
  • Submitting to body temperature screening
  • Submitting to COVID-19 testing
  • Self-reporting symptoms that could be related to COVID-19

Prior to the date of any SSAT test administration, test center staff will communicate with parents and guardians about location-specific safety requirements and conditions, including whether tests will be administered individually or in small groups, and other steps to help mitigate the risks of COVID-19.
