Please note:

  • If you are given additional or different instructions from a contact tracer or healthcare provider, follow those instructions. Students should contact Shroyer Health Center immediately to share those instructions.
  • LVC protocols will ultimately guide decisions regarding quarantine, isolation, and return to in-person classes. 

Self-quarantine: For asymptomatic individuals with potential exposure to COVID-19 or those who have traveled:

  • Stay in your room if you are a residential student, and stay home if you are a commuter or employee. Leave your room only to use the bathroom or go outside for fresh air, following safety protocols. Practice vigilant physical distancing, wear a cloth mask, and wash your hands often. Take your classes virtually.  
  • Do not go to work or socialize with friends or family outside your immediate household or roommate(s). The other members of your household or your roommate may go to work and class but should self-monitor closely for COVID-19 symptoms. They should be diligent about wearing a mask, hand washing, and physical distancing. 
  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19, your healthcare provider will give you an end-date for self-quarantine. Per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Pennsylvania Department of Health, a negative COVID-19 test does not automatically end your self-quarantine.
  • If you have traveled, you must self-quarantine for 14 days upon return to Pennsylvania or provide a negative COVID-19 test within a 72-hour timeframe of your return.

Self-isolationFor those who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have either tested positive or are awaiting test results:

  • Stay home except to receive medical care. 
  • Stay separate from family members and pets, use a different bathroom if possible, do not share personal items, and wear a mask around other people. 
  • Your healthcare provider will advise you when to stop self-isolating. Per the CDC and PDH, a negative COVID-19 test or the resolution of symptoms does not automatically end self-isolation.

What counts as close contact?

  • You were within six feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more within 24 hours.
  • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19.
  • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them).
  • You shared eating or drinking utensils.
  • They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you.

Contact Tracing: Contact tracing is the process of identifying close contacts of laboratory-confirmed or probably COVID-19 patients. Contact tracers are trained and keep your information confidential. Please respond promptly and honestly if a contact tracer calls you.

Employees: Do not report to campus. Self-quarantine and consult a physician for further evaluation. Please report any additional information to your department and human resources.

Students: Do not report to campus. Self-quarantine in your room if you live on campus or at home if you are a commuter. Call Public Safety, 1-717-867-6111, for further guidance. If you need immediate medical attention or if this is a medical emergency please contact 911.
