In Case You Missed It
Exposure and Contact Tracing Efforts
Updated instructions have been added to the Exposure and Contact Tracing webpage
. This includes guidelines if you receive notice that you are a confirmed close contact, as well as what to do and who to contact—these instructions differ based on vaccination status as well as whether you are a campus employee or student. Please review closely as needed.
Close contact: If you have been within six feet of someone who is COVID-19 infected for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period, starting from two days before their illness onset or positive test until they are isolated. This includes direct physical contact or providing care for a COVID-19 positive person.
Quarantine: When an individual has been exposed to the virus, they must stay (quarantine) in their residence and watch for the development of symptoms for 10 days from the initial exposure. These individuals are not sick and may not have symptoms.
Isolation: When an individual is infected with COVID-19, they must stay in their residence in a separate room by themselves (isolate) for 10 days—whether they have symptoms or not. They cannot leave their home, except to get medical care.
