In Miami, a private school has implemented a quarantine policy to have students vaccinated against COVID-19 stay home for 30 days after each dose.

Centner Academy sent a letter to parents urging them to hold off until the summer if they plan on getting their children vaccinated, WSVN reported.

The letter also told parents that the mandatory quarantine period would take place if they chose to get their children vaccinated. This announcement comes months after the school said it would not employ anyone who is vaccinated.

"Because of the potential impact on other students and our school community, vaccinated students will need to stay at home for 30 days post-vaccination for each dose and booster they receive and may return to school after 30 days as long as the student is healthy and symptom-free," the letter said, according to WSVN.

The school said it will force students to quarantine because "there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease."
