All students, no matter where they were during the fall or the December break, will participate in arrival quarantine. There will be no exceptions.
- You will remain in your room in your residence hall as soon as you arrive for the next 24-72 hours - until you are formally released to phase 2 arrival quarantine when your first negative test results are back.
- During this initial period, you may only leave your room to use a restroom or for medical care.
- Kitchens and common areas will be closed.
- You will do your daily temperature screening and pre-order food from DDS, which will be delivered to your residence hall common area.
- Guests, visitors and gathering in groups of any size will not be permitted.
If your test results are negative, the arrival quarantine period will continue, but you'll be able to go out to pick up your meals at one of four designated campus locations and engage in individual physical exercise.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you will be moved to isolation housing with the support of Health Service clinicians, who will remain in close touch; Health Service clinicians will guide that process.
- Once you have the arrival (day zero) negative test result from the Health Service, you will be released to phase two and will have some limited opportunities to leave your room to pick up your meals at your assigned location, pick up items in storage by appointment, and engage in individual exercise outdoors on campus (not in town).
- During this period, you may not go off-campus or into downtown Hanover, no one else may enter your room, and you will not have access to College facilities.
- You will be tested again during the first week on days 3 and 7 and may be released as early as day 8 if your day 7 test comes back negative.
