  • If, in consultation with a healthcare provider and local public health authorities knowledgeable about locally available testing resources, it is determined you will not have a test to determine if you are still contagious, you can leave home and return to the campus after these three conditions have been met: (1) You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is, 3 full days of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); AND (2) respiratory symptoms have improved (for example, cough or shortness of breath have improved); AND (3) at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.
  • If, in consultation with a healthcare provider and local public health authorities knowledgeable about locally available testing resources, it is determined you will be tested to determine if you are still contagious, you can leave home after these three conditions have been met: (1) You no longer has a fever (without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); AND (2) respiratory symptoms have improved (for example, cough or shortness of breath have improved); AND (3) you received two negative tests in a row, at least 24 hours apart.

Guidelines for returning to campus after being sent home due to your close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19

  • If you have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you will only be allowed to return to campus when fourteen (14) days has elapsed since you were last exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19. Further, if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or been around someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and you have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 (including but not limited to fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory illness, difficulty breathing) then you will not be allowed to return until you satisfy one of the criteria outline on the previous two slides.

How to Put on a Face Mask

  1. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask.
  2. Make sure there are no obvious tears or holes in either side of the mask.
  3. Determine which side of the mask is the top. The side of the mask that has a stiff bendable edge is the top and is meant to mold to the shape of your nose.
  4. Determine which side of the mask is the front. The colored side of the mask is usually the front and should face away from you, while the white side touches your face.
  5. Follow the instructions for the type of mask you are using.
    1. Face Mask with Ear loops:Hold the mask by the ear loops. Place a loop around each ear.
    2. Face Mask with Ties:Bring the mask to your nose level and place the ties over the crown of your head and secure with a bow.
    3. Face Mask with Bands:Hold the mask in your hand with the nosepiece or top of the mask at fingertips, allowing the headbands to hang freely below hands.  Bring the mask to your nose level and pull the top strap over your head so that it rests over the crown of your head.  Pull the bottom strap over your head so that it rests at the nape of your neck.
  6. Mold or pinch the stiff edge to the shape of your nose.
  7. If using a face mask with ties: Then take the bottom ties, one in each hand, and secure with a bow at the nape of your neck.
  8. Pull the bottom of the mask over your mouth and chin.

How to Remove a Face Mask

  1. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask
  2. Avoid touching the front of the mask. The front of the mask is contaminated. Only touch the ear loops/ties/band. Follow the instructions below for the type of mask you are using.
    1. Face Mask with Ear loops:Hold both of the ear loops and gently lift and remove the mask.
    2. Face Mask with Ties:Untie the bottom bow first then untie the top bow and pull the mask away from you as the ties are loosened
    3. Face Mask with Bands:Lift the bottom strap over your head first then pull the top strap over your head.
  3. Throw the mask in the trash. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer after throwing the mask away.
