COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation
Members of our campus community are expected to follow CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation.
If you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, CDC guidelines recommend that you wear a high quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day five.
Magers has high quality masks available for free in the pharmacy.
If you live in on-campus housing you may complete your quarantine period at home, in your regularly assigned room or in a different on-campus housing space.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for at least five days after symptoms developed or you were tested.
Regardless of when you end isolation, you should wear a high quality mask through day 10 and avoid being around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until at least day 11.
Guidance for isolation varies depending on whether or not you have symptoms.
If you live in on-campus housing, you may complete your isolation period at home or in the university’s isolation housing. If you decide to remain in the on-campus housing, immediately notify your residence hall front desk. You will be given guidance specific to isolating on campus. Additionally, you should notify others you have had close contact with while you were infectious.
