Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Self-Report an exposure or diagnosis of COVID-19 to help reduce the risk of coronavirus being unintentionally spread to others on campus. Your identity will be kept confidential.
Isolation and Quarantine
The CDC recently updated their guidance on isolation for those with confirmed or suspected COVID-19. This update includes guidance that individuals should isolate from others when they have COVID-19 or suspect they have COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status.
The CDC now recommends that instead of quarantining,
individuals who were
exposed to COVID-19 should wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5.
Tested positive? Stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. If you have no symptoms, you may end isolation after day five, but continue to wear your mask through day 10. With two sequential negative tests 48 hours apart, you may remove your mask sooner than day 10.
