We Are In This Together
The choices that each of us make can have lasting impacts on the people we encounter, connect with, join for classes, and live alongside. Students are expected to work together for the health and safety of the whole academic community.
As a part of our efforts to ensure that all members of our campus are safe, residential students and those taking classes on campus are asked to self-quarantine for ten days (and ideally up to 14 days) immediately prior to arriving to the University. This should include the following:
Limiting contact with others and staying home as much as possible, as well as following recommendations for physical distancing and facial coverage if outside the home during this time.
Monitoring your health each day, being sure to note any unusual symptoms that cannot be attributed to another health condition.
As you may be aware, the symptoms of Covid-19/Coronavirus can include the following:
- New cough
- New shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fever over 100.4
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- Loss of taste or smell
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
If students test positive for COVID 19 or experience COVID-19 symptoms within the TEN days prior to coming to campus or are in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the TEN days prior to coming to campus, students are asked to not come to campus and contact Health Services to discuss a plan for next steps.
