What happens if a student reports a symptom or exposure to COVID-19 in the Daily Health Screening?
Students who indicate symptoms or possible exposure to COVID-19 in the Daily Health Screening will receive instructions to contact the Student Health Service, to remain in their residence hall room (if living on campus) or to remain at home (if living off campus).
The Student Health Service, the student’s Residence Director (if applicable), and the instructors of the student’s in-person courses (if applicable) will be notified that the student did not pass the Screening for that day.
The Health Service will make a clinical judgment about the likelihood of COVID-19 based on the unique circumstances of each student’s case.
If the Student Health Service determines that the symptoms are unlikely to be COVID-19-related, they may clear the student to be present on campus and in subsequent seated classes, as long as future health screenings reveal resolution of symptoms and no exposure.
If the Student Health Services suspects that the symptoms are COVID-19-related, the student will be required to quarantine. If COVID-19 is confirmed by testing, the student will be required to isolate. Residential students may quarantine/isolate in Awosting Hall or at home. Commuter students will quarantine/isolate off campus. Both will be monitored by Student Health Services, the College’s contact tracers and, under some circumstances, county health officials.
