COVID-19 Guidance Tool

I've tested positive for COVID-19

Day one begins the day after you begin experiencing symptoms or test positive. Isolation is still required, per the Center for Disease Control.  It is recommended that you isolate at home if you test positive for COVID-19 for a minimum of 5 days, until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever reducing medication AND other COVID-19 symptoms are mild and improving.

If your symptoms are severe and prevent you from attending class beyond the 10-day isolation timeline, you will either need to schedule an appointment with the Wellness Center or provide documentation from an outside medical provider to the Wellness Center making the clinical determination that continued isolation is necessary.

Testing is no longer needed to end isolation. You should wear a high-quality mask for a total of 10 days.

Individuals with 2 sequential negative tests 48 hours apart after Day 5 may not have to wear a mask to complete the 10-day period of isolation/quarantine.

I have symptoms

It is recommended you get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible since you are displaying symptoms. 

Until you get tested, please limit your interactions and wear a high-quality fitted mask if you need to be around others.

I've been exposed to COVID-19

You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms, but you should get tested within 3-5 days of exposure and wear a high quality mask around other people who may be at risk or in crowded indoor settings for an additional 5 days after exposure.
