QUARANTINE AND ISOLATION FAQ (from SUNY and Erie County Department of Health FAQs)
Students who test positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to individuals who tested positive for COVID-19, or are informed by a state or local health department, or a medical or campus official that they are “at risk” for having COVID-19 will be required to quarantine or isolate.
Quarantine and Isolation for Residential Students will take place in two locations on campus, North Wing and Tower 2.
In an effort to increase awareness around quarantine and isolation, all residential students must acknowledge that if they are required to move into a quarantine and isolation space, they are responsible for being prepared.
Having a go-bag prepped and ready to go in their immediate space that contains the following:
Enough clothing for 10 days
All medications that you may need while in Q&I (Ibuprofen/Motrin/Tylenol)
Materials needed for class (textbooks, computer, chargers)
Any miscellaneous items that you may need while you are in quarantine (snacks, things to do etc.)
Additionally, students will be required to answer any calls from the Weigel Health Center (may come up as restricted) and comply with the staff members instructions. Once you receive the initial call, please bring your go-bag with you to either the health center to be tested, or to be moved into either a quarantine or isolation space within 30 minutes.
We appreciate your attention and swift action in aiding to do your part in keeping our campus community healthy.
While in quarantine students will receive daily phone calls from the Counseling Center. Student will be offered the option to opt out of daily calls if they prefer.
