While Bradley is committed to providing support for students in quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19, it’s up to all of us to adhere to these guidelines. They’re critical to help ensure everyone’s safety.
Remember, students should report any positive test results obtained off campus to Health Services. Employees should report any positive results to their supervisor or HR.
Isolation, as defined by the CDC, is separating a sick person from those who aren’t sick with COVID-19. In accordance with the CDC’s guidelines for isolation, if you’ve tested positive for COVID-19, you must isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms and until you’ve been symptom-free for at least 24 hours.
Quarantine, as defined by the CDC, separates and restricts the movement of anyone exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick. In accordance with the CDC’s guidelines for quarantine, if you’ve been identified as a close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you’re required to quarantine for 14 days.
The CDC released options to reduce quarantine time, however local public health authorities determine and establish the quarantine options for their jurisdictions. At this time we continue to follow the original protocol.
For students in isolation and/or quarantine, Student Support Services will contact your instructors to let them know you won’t be in person for your classes. However, if you’re feeling well enough, you’re encouraged to attend classes virtually. You’ll need to discuss any assignments with your instructor to ensure you’re completing all of your course requirements.
