Isolation requirements for students

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and/or test positive for COVID-19:

  • Stay Home and notify your Instructor.
  • Get extra sleep and stay hydrated.
  • Isolate for at least 5 days from date your symptoms started, or, if you didn't have symptoms, from the date you tested positive.
    • Isolation can end after Day 5 if:
      • Symptoms have resolved or are mild and improving; AND
      • You've been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
    • If symptoms are not improving, continue to isolate until symptoms improve. If symptoms persist after Day 10, contact your healthcare provider.
    • If symptoms are severe and/or if you are at high risk of serious disease contact your healthcare provider for available treatments.
    • If you meet requirements to end isolation before Day 10, you must wear a mask while indoors on campus until after Day 10. You may remove your mask sooner than Day 10 if you have two negative tests in a row, at least one day apart.
  • If symptoms recur or worsen after you have ended isolation, get tested again and if positive, restart isolation at Day 0.
  • If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Health Services Office at 559-325-5318 or
