Isolation and Quarantine
Stay up to date with the current covid-19 guidelines.
- Following the most updated guidelines from the CDC and SCDHEC, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine following exposure to a positive COVID-19 infection if they are not showing any symptoms.
- Unvaccinated individuals are required to quarantine following an exposure to a positive COVID-19 infection, regardless of their symptoms, as per guidelines from the CDC and SCDHEC.
- All students living on campus (WISH apartments) are required to file a quarantine and isolation plan with Housing and Residence Life (Dr. Korey Rothman). Emergency arrangements will be provided for on-campus students who are unable to quarantine or isolate at home.
- Students, faculty, and staff who test positive for COVID-19 will be expected to isolate at home to prevent the spread of illness.
Please use the open response field below to outline your plan of action for Quarantine & Isolation (Q & I) Housing during the Fall 2021 semester should you test positive for, or be exposed to, COVID-19. Please submit a legitimate plan of action, as you will not be allowed to remain in your assigned WISH apartment if you test positive for COVID-19 until cleared by a healthcare professional. You will also not be able to remain in your assigned WISH apartment if you are required to quarantine due to an exposure.
All students must submit a Q & I plan, even if vaccinated.
Example 1: If I were to need quarantine and isolation housing, my parents will pick me up in D.C. and drive me to my home in Sumter, SC. I will quarantine/isolate in a local hotel until my parents can pick me up in D.C. If for some reason I were unable to get home to SC, I will stay in a local hotel for the duration of my quarantine and isolation.
Example 2: If I were to need quarantine and isolation housing, my friend will pick me up in D.C. and drive me to her apartment in Maryland. I will stay with her at her apartment in Maryland for the duration of my quarantine and isolation and then return to D.C.
