QUARANTINE GUIDELINES

CDC Guidance On When To Quarantine

Upon receiving revised guidance from the CDC, the following revisions are now in place for isolation and quarantine:

When You Test Positive - Isolation protocols

We are adopting the updated CDC protocols for isolation of individuals who’ve tested positive for the virus. If you test positive for COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status:

  • Report your case to the appropriate University officials and complete the Return to Work Certification Form
  • You must isolate for FIVE days
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving (no fever for 24 hours), you may leave isolation after five days.
  • After leaving isolation, you must wear a mask around others for an additional five days.

If you have a fever, you must continue to isolate until your fever resolves without the aid of fever-reducing medication.
