When Can I Return to Campus?

If You Test Positive

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, make sure you can answer "yes" to the following questions before you return to campus:

  1. Have you read and understood the COVID-19 Isolation Flowchart?
  2. Have you completed the isolation period recommended by your own health care provider or a local health authority?
  3. Have your symptoms resolved, or are they subsiding, and have you been fever-free for 24 hours without fever‐reducing medications?
