Quarantine & Isolation
On-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate in their assigned rooms for five days.
Off-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 are also required to isolate for five days and should utilize their homes for isolation.
All students who test positive, whether living on or off-campus, are required to wear face coverings and encouraged to wear a KN95 mask when leaving their room/residence for any reason until day 5. All individuals who test positive for COVID will be required to mask for five days following their isolation period.
All students who test positive, whether living on or off-campus, are required to wear face coverings and encouraged to wear a KN95 mask when leaving their room/residence for any reason until day 5. All individuals who test positive for COVID will be required to mask for five additional days following their isolation period.
Roommates of an individual who tests positive for COVID are considered close contacts and, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a high-quality face covering when leaving their rooms for any reason until day 5. If roommates are asymptomatic after five days, they may discontinue wearing a face covering except in places on campus where masks are still required.
On-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate in their assigned rooms for five days, leaving only to retrieve meals from the dining halls or other designated facilities on campus. Grab and Go meals are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students in isolation may also use the University’s Sick Meals policy for carryout meals during dining hall hours of operation.
Off-campus quarantine space is not available to on-campus students whose roommate(s) tests positive regardless of vaccination status. However, students are welcome to temporarily relocate to a friend’s room or off-campus space at their own discretion. Previous close contact transmission testing in our campus community has shown a low positivity rate in both vaccinated and unvaccinated students in quarantine. The risk for contracting the virus can be significantly mitigated by wearing a KN95 mask or other face covering, which is required of all students for five days whose roommate(s) tests positive.
Off-campus students should utilize their homes for quarantine or isolation.
Faculty and Staff
Faculty and staff who test positive for COVID or who are at known exposure to COVID should follow the guidance of the CDC and/or their medical provider for quarantine and isolation. The CDC guidelines are available here.
