CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation

Quarantine

If you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, follow CDC guidelines about if you need to quarantine and for how long.

Guidelines vary depending on if you’re fully vaccinated, including all recommended boosters, or if you’ve had COVID-19 within the last 90 days.

If you live in a residence hall you may complete your quarantine period at home, in your regularly assigned room or in the university’s on-campus housing. If you decide to remain in the on-campus housing, immediately notify your residence hall front desk. You will be required to follow guidance specific to quarantining on campus.

Isolation

If you test positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for at least five days after symptoms developed or you were tested.

Guidance for isolation varies depending on whether or not you have symptoms.
