Being in quarantine can be difficult. It can be boring, lonely and frustrating, but it’s critical you take good care of yourself and completely avoid in-person interactions with others for the duration of your quarantine.
Regardless of where you quarantine, you may leave your quarantine lodging only for the following reasons. You must follow all precautions necessary to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 to others:
You may spend time outside. If you’re quarantining in a residence hall, this must be coordinated with you picking up your meals.
You may run essential errands off-campus (e.g. pharmacy, grocery store). However, if you’re quarantining in a residence hall, you may not.
You may not have any visitors or guests while in quarantine, even if they're also in quarantine, have had COVID-19 themselves, or are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines.
You may be quarantined with other students who are required to quarantine. Be courteous and respectful at all times. You must wear a mask and remain physically distant from others when outside of your sleeping room. You should be diligent about disinfecting kitchen surfaces, bathroom surfaces and other common area surfaces after use.
All students, regardless of their location, will quarantine in their current residence. This includes students in the residence halls that have roommates who may not be in quarantine. You may return to your permanent residence if you wish to quarantine. However, you must arrange this through Health Services who’ll work directly with you to provide guidance for safe travel.
Meals and Food
If you're quarantining in the residence halls, Dining Services will provide meals for you. You’ll receive further details regarding the specifics of your meal pick-up at the beginning of your quarantine. You must wear a mask and remain physically distant from others when you collect your meal.
If you’re quarantining at a location other than the residence halls, you may order food or groceries, but you must ensure contactless delivery. You must wear a mask and remain physically distant from others when you collect your food/grocery.
