Quinnipiac has designated specific apartments and suites in residence halls as isolation and quarantine locations for its residential students living in university-owned housing. Students also will be given the option to isolate or quarantine at home, depending on their own and their family’s preference and circumstances and availability of on-campus locations. Quarantine housing is used when a person has potentially been exposed to COVID-19 and needs to separate from other people to see if they develop symptoms and become sick. Isolation housing is used when someone has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19.
If a student needs to quarantine, Student Health Services will work with Residential Life to arrange for the student to move to a private room or semi-private room until the period of quarantine is over. If a student needs to isolate, Student Health Services will work with Residential Life to arrange for the student to move to a private room or semi-private room with another student who is also in isolation.
While in quarantine or isolation, students will have full access to wireless internet so they can attend classes remotely and participate in virtual student activities.
Student Health Services personnel will remotely monitor the progress of the student in isolation and registered nurses through our health care partner, UST Global, will make daily check-in calls to students in isolation and quarantine. Student Health Services will determine when the quarantine or isolation period has concluded, and the student may return to their academic year room assignment. Additional guidance on who must quarantine, including temporary residence assignments and protocols, will be provided to students who are going into quarantine or isolation housing.
