Isolation and Quarantine FAQs

What You Need To Know

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe during your self-isolation for probable/known COVID 19.  Here are a few resources for support and reminders about safety during your isolation:  

*How long will I be here?  

You will need to stay in isolation for 10 days after onset of symptoms AND you must have no fever for 24 hours (without Tylenol or ibuprofen) before you can be cleared to return to your dorm.   You also need to be feeling better!  We cannot clear you unless you are documenting your temperatures twice daily.  Let us know if you need more thermometers.   You will receive a daily survey through your health portal to log symptoms and alert our provider staff to any concerns.  The survey arrives at 9 a.m., please complete it as soon as possible.

*Can I take a walk?

You can go outside for a walk just wear a mask and keep a social distance (greater than 6 feet) from others.

***PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES WHEN LEAVING YOUR ROOM***

*What about Food?
