Quarantine an Isolation Guidance

From Campus Health 01/11/2022

As you are aware, there have been a few changes made in the quarantine/isolation processes. I would like to give you a summary of what all has been done. The biggest change you will notice is that quarantine and isolation timeframes have been decreased dramatically.

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  • Individuals with a positive COVID-19 test should isolate until 5 days have passed, if the person is asymptomatic, or if symptoms are improving and the individual has been fever free without medication for 24 hours at day five. This isolation period should be followed by five days of wearing a well-fitting mask while around others. It is not recommended you retest for COVID-19 within 90 days from your illness onset if you remain asymptomatic; test results during this time may remain residually positive. If you do become ill again, consult with your healthcare provider regarding your illness.

Tips for COVID-19 Prevention

You are encouraged to stay healthy through these preventive practices:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid close contact inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid close contact outside your home: Put six feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
  • Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • Monitor your health daily. Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
