Testing will be in place for any unvaccinated students, and may be randomly assigned to vaccinated students depending upon the guidance of the CDC and State Department of Public Health. Please look for updates periodically. Once again, those who are required to be tested will be documented for failure to test and referred to Judicial Affairs. Students who test positive will be required to isolate, either at home or in Fairfield Hall. Roommates and contacts may also be required to quarantine or seclude for a period of time if you test positive or are symptomatic.
Isolation, Quarantine, and Seclusion.
If you become infected and/or diagnosed with Covid-19, you must first report it to Health Services through this link: https://westconn.tfaforms.net/201.
Students who test positive will be offered an individual ISOLATION room in Fairfield Hall. Isolation lasts 10 days from the date of testing, and students should, if possible, continue their classes online and with guidance from their professors. Meals will be provided to you in Fairfield during the isolation period. (Other information about isolation will be provided to you when arrangements are being made to move you to the isolation area).
Students who come in contact with or have been exposed to a positive Covid-19 case are required to QUARANTINE. Midtown residents will quarantine in a separate area of Fairfield Hall from the students in Isolation. Westside residents will quarantine in their suite or apartment, and will be required to be masked, maintain social distancing, and implement disinfection practices when in common areas with roommates. Quarantine lasts 10 days from the date of last contact with the positive case. Meals will be delivered to your suite or apartment door. (Other information about quarantine will be provided to you when arrangements are being made for your quarantine).
If you are showing symptoms for Covid-19 or were exposed to another person exhibiting symptoms of or suspected of having Covid-19, you are required to SECLUDE pending having your own test and receiving negative results. This seclusion period is usually 2-3 days (until the test results are returned and you have been released by Health Services), and will occur in your assigned room/suite/apartment. You will be required to be masked, maintain social distancing, and implement disinfection practices when in common areas. If you receive a positive test result, you will be moved to Isolation. (Other information about seclusion will be provided to you when arrangements are being made for your seclusion).
