Residential Students: Self-Quarantine Before Returning to Campus

Note: Residential students must self-quarantine in addition to taking a re-entry test Receiving a negative re-entry test still requires self-quarantining to prevent an early outbreak on campus.  

Due to the widespread and sustained rates of COVID-19, all residential students should self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to campus for the Spring 2021 semester. The College defines self-quarantining as staying at home and not interacting with anyone except the members of your household. Quarantining includes not going to your place of work and not socializing with friends or family outside of your immediate household. The other members of your household may go to work but should be diligent about wearing a mask, hand washing, and physical distancing to help maximize your quarantine efforts. 

Students who have work or other, non-social obligations that prevent them from completing a full 14-day quarantine prior to arriving on campus should email Students unable to quarantine due to social or family events should plan to delay their arrival in order to meet the 14-day requirement and also email with additional details on their expected arrival date.

On the day you are assigned to move in, if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have had a known, close exposure to a COVID-19-positive person in the past 14 days, do not come to campus. Instead, contact a healthcare provider for further guidance and alert that you will not be arriving as scheduled for move-in.

Complete the symptom tracker with the appropriate symptoms or exposure details and contact health services with further questions (717-867-6232). If you are unable to move in on your assigned date due to COVID-19 symptoms or are under self-isolation or self-quarantine, start your classes online.
