The Mystic Learning Center, Inc. continues to follow guidance from the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), and the Somerville Board of Health and Human Services Department.
Masks are no longer required, but the Mystic Learning Center fully supports individuals who wish to continue to wear a mask and can provide masks upon entering our space if needed.
We will do our best to remain open and provide care to the families we serve through the COVID-19 surges. If the MLC is made aware of a positive COVID test result, staff with both stay late and arrive early the next day to deep clean both centers per CDC, DESE, EEC, and the local board of health guidelines. The MLC will follow protocol and notify families, schools, the local board of health, and EEC if there is an outbreak. In the rare event that the agency must shutdown for any amount of time due to multiple positive COVID results, negative staff will be expected to work on those days that the MLC/MELC is closed to students.
If a Staff Member or a Student is exposed to a COVID positive individual:
Quarantine is no longer required nor recommended for children or staff, regardless of vaccination status or where the exposure occurred. All exposed individuals may continue to attend programming as long as they remain asymptomatic. Those who can mask should do so until Day 10, and it is recommended that they test on Day 6 of exposure. If symptoms develop, follow the guidance for symptomatic individuals listed below.
