 Isolation Guidelines

  • Stay in your own room and use your own bathroom, if possible.
  • Avoid contact with people and/or pets in your home and living space.
  • Don’t share household items like cups, towels, utensils, etc.
  • Only leave your living space for medical care.
  • Remain in isolation until you have no fever for at least 72 hours (without medication) AND symptoms have improved AND at least five days have passed since your symptoms first started or you tested positive.
  • Please wear a well fitting mask for five days post isolation.

What do I do if I've tested positive for COVID-19?

You will receive an email from the COVID-19 Response Team with further instructions. In the meantime, if you test positive for COVID-19 you must isolate. Isolation is a period of time spent avoiding all physical human contact due to testing positive for COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms. This involves trying to only use your own bathroom and bedroom (and not using other areas where other people in your home may live). 

What do I do if I test negative for COVID-19?

If you test negative while in quarantine, you need to complete the duration of your quarantine (5 days after last known exposure).

Please wear a mask while experiencing symptoms and make an appointment with a medical provider to seek an alternative diagnosis. Stay home until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.


Prevention is best. Always practice healthy actions to protect yourself and others.
