The CDC’s COVID-19 quarantine and isolation calculator is available online at cdc.gov. If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with the virus, follow the on-screen instructions within the calculator to determine how long you should quarantine or isolate, when you should get tested, how long you should wear a mask, and other important safety precautions you should follow.
According to CDC guidance, all positive individuals — regardless of vaccination status — should:
- Stay home for 5 days.
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
- Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.
The university has eliminated the requirement that students and employees report signs or symptoms of COVID-19 — or an exposure to a person with COVID-19 or positive COVID-19 test — via the Shenandoah Go app or otherwise.
The CDC still defines close contact as being within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
