You need to quarantine


Quarantine is required for all people who are exposed and either unvaccinated or whose vaccine effectiveness is waning.

If you have NOT received a vaccine or booster we encourage you to do so at our campus vaccination sites.

Follow the 5-5-5 rule for quarantine

Stay at home for 5 days

Stay at home for 5 days from the day you were tested, even if you don’t have symptoms or feel sick.

Fill out the self-report form and work with your instructors or supervisors to manage classes or work.

You can leave your house after 5 days if your symptoms have improved (fever-free for at least 24 hours and your symptoms have improved).

You must stay home for at least 5 days.

Get test at Day 5

Get a COVID-19 test before returning to your normal activities (work, school, etc.) to make sure you no longer are spreading the COVID-19 virus. 

Since you have already tested positive for COVID-19, use a rapid antigen test (not a PCR test) for your Day 5 test.

Wear a mask for 5 days

You need to wear a mask around others for the 5 days after the time you were isolating in your home.
