Quarantine and Isolation
In coordination with our health-care and agency partners, we follow CDC guidelines when determining who will quarantine or isolate, and when.
- Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, must isolate.
- Students can’t attend class in person, but are responsible for contacting professors to determine how to make up work.
- Residential students must make every effort to return home for their isolation period.
- Plan to isolate for 10 days.
- On Day 5 (day 0 is the day you tested positive) if you have no symptoms or symptoms are resolving, and you have been fever-free for 24 hours, schedule a rapid test at Health Services or through an urgent care center or physician’s office.
- If you are negative, send a copy of your negative test to firstname.lastname@example.org and await official clearance. The tracing team will call you to complete your clearance.
- Once you have been cleared by a tracer, you may leave isolation, but must always wear a mask when around others (even outside) for the next five days.
- If you test positive, have a fever, and/or other symptoms on or after Day 5, continue to isolate for a full 10 days.
- You do not need to quarantine.
- Wear a mask whenever you around other people (even outside).
- Test on Day 5, or any time you develop symptoms.
- You must quarantine.
- Test on Day 5. If you are negative, you can leave quarantine and mask for five additional days both inside and outside.
