Procedures for Quarantine or Isolation for students who test positive for COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or become exposure to someone with COVID-19
Quarantine vs Isolation
Quarantine (If you were exposed) – Quarantine and stay away from others when you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
Isolate (If you are sick or test positive) – Isolate when you are sick or when you test positive, even if you don’t have symptoms.
The date of your exposure is considered day 0. Day 1 is the first full day after your last contact with a person who has had COVID-19.
IF YOU Were exposed to COVID-19 and
- Are fully vaccinated – No quarantine necessary. You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms.
- Had confirmed COVID-19 within the past 90 days – No quarantine necessary. You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms.
- Are not fully vaccinated – Quarantine for at least 5 full days. You may end quarantine after 5 full days unless you develop symptoms.
Isolation (Symptoms/Positive Test Results)
Day 0 is your first day of symptoms or a positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed or your test specimen was collected.
IF YOU Tested positive for COVID-19 or develop symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, stay home and isolate for at least 5 days.
- Ending isolation if you did NOT have symptoms (tested positive). End isolation after at least 5 full days after your positive test.
- Ending isolation if you had symptoms. End isolation after 5 full days if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and your symptoms are improving.
If you continue to have fever or your other symptoms have not improved after 5 days of isolation, you must wait to end your isolation until you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved.
