Report COVID symptoms
If a person is exposed to COVID-19 while wearing a mask, there is no quarantine requirement regardless of vaccination status.
If a person is exposed to COVID-19 and is not wearing a mask, a person must abide the following requirements:
Students who were exposed to a COVID-positive individual will be notified directly
by the university's contact tracer. Faculty or Staff will be contacted by a Human
Resources representative for contact tracing and follow up after submitting an Employee
Individuals who have recovered from COVID will be considered as having gained natural immunity, and therefore considered in the same manner as those who have been vaccinated.
If an employee (faculty or staff member) tests positive for COVID-19:
If a student tests positive for COVID-19, he/she must self-isolate for 10 days (regardless
of vaccination status). The University has set aside several rooms for self-isolation
on campus. These rooms are available to on-campus residents only. If these rooms become
fully occupied, those who must quarantine or isolate will be required to identify
a location to do so off-campus and will bear the entire expense of room and board
while isolating off-campus.
Have a Plan
On-campus residential space is limited and will be prioritized for emergency cases, such as for those students who live a long distance from campus. Area hotels may have limited availability as well, so we recommend students have a plan for place to quarantine or isolate due to a COVID exposure or positive result.
The university will adhere to Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) and NCAA Competition Considerations, which require testing for students who are not fully vaccinated. Each school is to confirm their teams’ readiness for competition.
