Vaccinated and Symptomatic


Since I am vaccinated but have symptoms of COVID-19, I need to:


  • Isolate at home or in a designated room in Student Housing, beginning on the date that you tested positive, or you become symptomatic (whichever is first), for at least 10 days.
  • Isolation is a public health term that means that people who have symptoms of COVID-19 and/or test positive for COVID-19 are separated from the general population until they are no longer infectious.
  • Isolation is different from quarantine. Isolation is for when you KNOW you are infected. Quarantine is for when you MIGHT be infected but DON'T KNOW yet.


  • Complete the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form.
  • Call your primary care physician or health care provider for guidance on appropriate action to take.
  • Notify the Contact Tracing team and the instructors of any in-person classes you attended, of any University locations you have frequented for the period up to 2 days prior to becoming symptomatic.


Get tested

  • Get tested for COVID-19, if you haven’t already done so.
  • Once you have received the results of the diagnostic test, contact your instructors / supervisor and submit another Self- Reporting Form to update the University Contact Tracing team.
  • Regardless of the COVID-19 test results, you should not return to in-person classes until 10 days after your symptoms began, your symptoms have improved, and you are fever-free for at least 24 hours (without fever-reducing medications).

When does my isolation end?
