Strategies for Everyday Health and Wellness
COVID-19 mitigation efforts have required our college community to work within changing, complex circumstances and unprecedented situations over the past several years. The College is committed to equity in learning and health through comprehensive prevention strategies to keep students, staff, families, and our school community safe and provide supportive environments for in-person learning.
The college will follow the CDC guidelines for management of COVID-19 for the academic school year 2023-2024.
Wearing a well-fitted mask reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19 virus. Masks are currently not required to be worn. The Camus Community would be notified if that would change. Members of the Campus Community may choose to wear a mask and at times individuals may be required to mask per CDC guidelines.
Health Services will assess and triage students who have symptoms of COVID-19, and will offer a rapid test on site if indicated. Employees should reach out to their personal healthcare provider for assessment and testing.
Quarantine: Quarantine is no longer recommended by the CDC in a college setting for people who are exposed to COVID-19. If you suspect you have been exposed to or have COVID-19, contact Health Services or your family doctor for assessment.
Isolation: Regardless of vaccine status, it is required for the College community that you isolate from others when you have COVID-19. You should isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results. If you test results are positive and you had no symptoms day 0 is the day you were tested, day 1 is the first full day of isolation and you need to isolate for full 5 days. If you develop symptoms within 10 days of when you were tested, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset. If you test positive and you have/had symptoms day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset. Day 1 is the first full day of isolation and you must isolate for 5 full days. If your test is negative you do not need to isolate or can end your isolation.
Ending Isolation: If you had no symptoms, you may end isolation after 5 days. If you had symptoms and your symptoms are improving and you are fever free for 24 hours without use of fever-reducing medication you may end your isolation after 5 days. If you symptoms are not improving and/or you continue to have fevers, continue to isolate and contact Health Services at 717-299-7769.
