Quarantine and Isolation Wellbeing

If you have tested positive for COVID-19

Resources are available to help you if you test positive for COVID-19, are a close contact of a COVID-19 Case or are experiencing COVID-19 Symptoms. These resources are designed to support you as you navigate through this process.

Who do I contact if I need support?

If it is an emergency, contact Public Safety at 909-748-8888. If it is not an emergency and you need COVID-related support, please fill out the COVID-19 Symptoms, Exposure, or Positive Test Reporting Form. This form is sent to the Student COVID Case Team and once received will prompt them to begin the outreach process.

When should I submit a COVID-19 Reporting Form?

  • If you have received a COVID-19 positive test result.  
  • If you have been in close contact with someone who has received a COVID-19 positive test result. 
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.  

Please note, all members of the University community are expected to report fully, accurately, and immediately.  Any delay in reporting creates risk to others.  

Should I quarantine if I submit a COVID-19 Reporting Form?

If you are experiencing symptoms, have had a known exposure, or received a positive test, you should quarantine until contacted by a case manager.

It is best that you reduce the possibility of spread by eliminating any close contact until the COVID-19 Case Team can follow up. This means students should self-isolate as much as possible, and wear a face covering and maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance to others when in shared spaces 

What happens when I submit a COVID-19 Reporting Form?

1. You Submit the COVID-19 Reporting Form

The form is sent to the Student COVID-19 Case Team. They will review it and start the process of connecting you with a Case Manager to confirm information and offer resources.

2. Immediately after you Submit a COVID-19 Reporting Form

You will be sent an automatic reply with information to help you until a Case Manager contacts you. This information includes what to do if you need immediate support.

3. A Case Manager Will Reach Out to You

Case Managers will contact you via phone to gather additional information about your report, ask you clarifying questions, and if you’re COVID-19 positive, begin Contact Tracing. At the end of the conversation, your Case Manager will determine whether you need to adjust your status (quarantine or isolation) and connect you with the appropriate resources to support your identified needs.

What are some Resources that are available?

Many of our Campus Partners already provide services to help support students on campus. As a part of our response to COVID-19, these services have been adapted to include supporting students remotely as well as those who are in quarantine or isolation on campus. Some of these resources include:

  • Residence Life & Housing managing room relocations for on campus students.
  • Facilities Management sanitizing spaces on campus.
  • Academic Support and Accommodations being offered through new modalities.
  • Harvest Table offering food delivery for on campus students in Isolation & Quarantine as well as contactless pickup options for the general student population.
  • Counseling Center offering COVID-19 specific support groups to students.
  • Health Center providing appointment-based consultation.
  • A Case Manager team to help support students as they navigate these pathways.

Our Case Managers will help connect you to these resources during and after their initial outreach, however they can only do so once you have submitted a COVID-19 Symptoms, Exposure, or Positive Test Reporting Form.

What is the difference between Quarantine and Isolation?

The following information was created using guidance from CDC on quarantine and isolation.

QUARANTINE keeps someone who was in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 away from others.

If you had close contact with a person who has COVID-19

  • The best way to protect yourself and others is to get tested as soon as possible, wear a mask, socially distance, and get tested again 5 days after your exposure.
  • Check your temperature twice a day and watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If possible, stay away from people who are at higher-risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.

ISOLATION keeps someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19 without symptoms away from others, even in their own home.

If you are sick and think or know you have COVID-19

  • Isolate for at least 5 days since symptoms first appeared and
  • At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
  • Symptoms have improved.
  • You get a negative result from a rapid test.

If you tested positive for COVID-19 but do not have symptoms

  • Isolate for at least 5 days from date of original positive test.
  • Take a rapid test 5 days after your original positive test.

If you live with others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area and away from other people or animals, including pets. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
