Isolation and Quarantine

We will require students, faculty, and staff who are symptomatic or who have been exposed to COVID-19 (as defined above) to self-isolate in their residence while awaiting test results. If students have a roommate, we will expect the roommate to self-isolate also. Students may continue to participate in classes virtually, and food service and other needs will be coordinated through student services. Faculty and staff may work remotely.

If test results are positive, the impacted resident student(s) will be removed to a quarantined room, away from the general population. Healthcare will be provided by the Student Health Center, and other needs will be coordinated by student services. If able, the students may continue to participate in classes virtually. The time in quarantine will be determined by the Student Health Center. Non-resident students will be required to remain off campus, follow the care plan of their healthcare provider, and return to campus when allowed by their healthcare provider. Virtual learning and remote work may continue if possible.


We will provide weekly statistical reports about testing, positive tests, and other data through the CampusShield app.
